Changing "I Know" to "I Care"

When you think about all that goes in to creating a professional in the auto industry, what comes to mind?  Usually things like, training, dedication, persistence, confidence and motivation come to mind.  All of these are important and valuable components essential for any professional, but they can't be effective without the one element that ties it all together.  You have to care.  Smarter people than I have…

The Process Is The Process

When you are working a deal, how do you direct your sales people?  Do you insist they follow your steps to the sale?  Regardless of whether you have 8, 10 or even 12 steps, you have a specific process to increase the chances of success in selling and retaining that customer for a long time.  So, why don't you do that when…

Follow Me - I'm Right Behind You

Last week I was busy leading a class of new salespeople through our 21st Century Sales Program(c) and as with all of my classes, one or two students always emerge as leaders but, not always the ones you'd think.  There are the ones who are eager to participate, but they aren't necessarily the leaders.  Others seem to know the answers to all the questions, but that may not mean leadership.

 

The ones that stand out are often in the background.  But, if you recognize them, you…

Who Would You Take A Bullet For?

That's a tough question.  It can put many people on the spot and get others thinking, perhaps to reeavluate life's priorities.  Maybe, as we end the week, this is a bit to tough a topic even for those who participate.  For those of us who served in the military, the answer is as simple as we do it for our country.  Now that we're civilians, perhaps the answer changed.  At this point in my life, the list is short - My father and mother, my son and daughter, my two brothers, and my best friend…

Are You Training Your Replacement

In 1982 I had the biggest blessing ever in the car business.  "Bruce" hired me as a sales person.  Bruce was the GM of a small Ford store in NJ and I was still finding my way around the business.  All I knew for sure was that I wanted to be a sales manager.  At that time, I couldn't tell a good one from a bad one but I still wanted to be one. …

Every Challenge Has Three Choices

Isn't life funny?  Things happen all around us.  Sometimes you pay attention and somethings should be ignored.  But, as the old saying goes, life isn't about what happens to us, it's about what we do when something happens.  As a member of this planet for over 55 years, I've come to the conclusion that there are just 3 choices to everything in life.  While some of you may think I'm over simplifying, take a few minutes to finish this article and see what I mean.

 

To keep things…

Hiring Mistakes Dealers Make When Looking For Sales People

 

Let's be honest, placing ads for hiring sales people is the least fun thing to do in the business.  You have to design it, place it and then wait.  And, since your primary role is to sell, service, and deliver vehicles, your creativity just isn't into this.  You never know when an interview will show up, how to determine if they're qualified, or when to…
