Do you Value your Employees? Show Them!

A little over a year ago, the founder of a credit card payment processing company made an unorthodox move that resulted in some very mixed reactions and a whole lot of media attention.

When Being a Manager Requires Compassion

The retail automotive world demands a lot, including long hours, working holidays and little flexibility in schedule. Most dealerships require 1 or 2 “bells” per week, (working open to close) and don’t include many weekends off, as Saturday and Sunday are typically busy days, when consumers have time to shop for a vehicle.

Influencer
Training is Managing

When I first began selling cars my training consisted of: “This is the new car lot, this is the new car manager, this is the used car lot, and this is the used car manager.
