Gas Prices Up! Opportunity or Concern?


Recommended Posts

I am not hear to debate the reasons why gas prices are so high these days.  I was in California last week and many gas prices at many stations were well over $5.00, some inching toward 6 bucks. 

Could we use this to our advantage?  Perhaps promoting ways for our customers to squeeze every mile out of every gallon through gas saving tips, preventive maintenance, etc.?

Like to hear from everyone.

      Dorman gives people greater freedom to fix vehicles by constantly developing new repair solutions that put owners and technicians first. By always innovating, Dorman has led the way in growing the aftermarket. Here you will see a few examples of a Dorman OE Fix. An OE FIX is a Dorman repair solution you can’t get from the original equipment manufacturer. It means they found a situation where they believe the OEM wasn’t giving repair professionals what they wanted, so we fixed it. Everything Dorman does is centered around providing customer value, both in the quality of products, and the creativity of solutions. Our engineers and designers go out of their way to save repair technicians time and save vehicle owners money. Want to really go under the hood?

      Key Talking Points
      Help the classroom understand, relate and apply it- don't overcomplicate Do we have too much “wow factor” are they leaving the class thinking the instructor is knowledgeable or are they leaving with epiphany moments Talk to students then listen- take what you know and piece the puzzle together to what they understand Presentations aren’t teaching- too much information isn’t going to stick, pick one focal point.  “Teaching isn't talking”  Scan QR code to answer questions prior to class to get feedback, or ask questions in beginning and ask the same question at the end.  “How to learn” class- learning styles, you may prefer one but you also need to improve the other learning styles Achieving certification doesn’t mean you are exempt from learning more “How to teach” class- sticking content needs to have an anchor point. Giving information and give the opportunity to give information back and start applying it “How to take tests”  Dunnan and Kreuger- high confidence have lower competence, ability to do doesn’t match what they display out (big peacock), not confident and constantly reading and learning, they stay quiet.  Learning path- apply the knowledge you receive immediately Connect with the show:
