Building a Reliable Mentor/Mentee Program – Marc Brune [RR 780]


Recommended Posts

Did you know that 70% of change initiatives with new programs/systems will fail due to a lack of leadership commitment?  I want to focus on mentor/mentee and apprenticeship programs, which are most critical to our industry’s survival.  You can lose your way without processes, procedures, and accountability to mold your apprentice into your shop. Too much talk and not enough action is the breakdown.  Luckily for you, my guest, Marc Brune, has a program focused on helping businesses develop entry-level technician mentoring programs with the tech shortage in mind.  Marc Brune, Business Development Manager, mentormentee.com  Key Talking Points

  • 3 key people- manager, mentor, mentee
  • People are looking for a plan and someone to help along the path
  • Preparing for business before entry-level candidate comes on board- do you have the right culture for a positive mentor-mentee atmosphere? Who will be the best person to step in (manager) and mentor (can multitask)
  • Mentor- teaches not only automotive but also speaks the culture of the shop 
  • Mentoring vs. teaching- teaching is 1-way street, and mentoring is a 2-way street
  • Assessment- 15 different categories, ranked in order of importance
  • Educate- set expectations for each role
  • Execution- have mentee and plan
  • Plan- having a repeatable plan 
  • Online course specific for each role- 3 hours each
  • Facilitating growth- offers ASE task lists used in ASE accredited program
  • Soft skills- customers are a part of your business
  • Setting goals- mentor and mentee can set specific goals with dates and be able to adjust  
  • Recruit- “the important things are never urgent, and the urgent things are never important.” Have the recruiting mindset.   
  • Execute- daily on the job training plan for mentees and track progress
  • Analyze and reward- get the data flowing on how the mentor/mentee progressing. Build incentives for growth with both mentor/mentee. Don’t let your mentors go red in their pay.

      There are many things to consider when creating a marketing plan. Among them are establishing a budget, what forms of media should be used, and whether traditional advertising, such as TV, radio, and print, is still relevant.  And of course, how much should be allocated to social media and digital advertising?
      All the above are essentials to any marketing plan. However, the first step is ensuring that you have a healthy workplace and that your employees understand your company’s culture and the overall mission and vision. 
      We all know that happy employees create happy customers. No form of advertising can overcome a toxic workplace with unhappy employees. If your employees are not creating an amazing customer experience, your marketing plan will not work.
      Advertising and marketing may bring in customers, but the people in your company creating an amazing customer experience will be the most important component of your marketing plan.  It’s the customer experience that sells work and gives the customer a reason to return. 
      Creating an amazing employee experience, which creates an amazing customer experience, is also the most cost-effective part of your marketing plan. In fact, it cost next to nothing.

      Perhaps this is a trick question, but it's worth a discussion.  Many auto repair shops spend a lot of money to get new customers. But what about the ones we have already?  
      What marketing strategies do you have to attract new customers and retain the ones you have now?

      We are with Jimmy Lea from Kukui at ASTE 2022 with another important Google Update. We are always keeping you in the know as it relates to mother Google. Google is now giving more credibility and weight to customer reviews. It goes beyond their ranked star review and dives into what they wrote, word for word, literally. What does that mean for your shop? Jimmy Lea, KUKUI Evangelist. Listen to Jimmy’s previous episodes HERE Key Talking Points
      The Google algorithms have  changed, and now they are giving more credibility and more weight to customer reviews Be an open book when we're asking for our reviews. You want five stars, but you also need three, two, and one in order to get the ranking right. Customers want to know how you handle mistakes. Recent reviews show a customer what they will expect.  The good and the bad of Google Reviews are once you go on and leave a Google Review when you come back, you can revise the review, but you can't leave another standalone review The about us page is so important. You must have employee testimonials, customer testimonials, and what makes your shop unique  Do short videos on your about page from the customers and technicians The power of blogs. Google gives more credibility to the blog, and they  need to be consistent
