What Mr. Phelps Did Not Know

Jim Phelps, the Mission Impossible Force agent, always received secret orders on a tape recording, which self-destructed seconds after play.

Improve your Effectiveness TODAY: Ask Me Why

I peruse more articles per day than I can count in my efforts to remain on the cutting edge of strategy, social network management and online marketing. Recently, I found that one common, underlying theme to so many of these "tips and tricks," as they're often packaged, was actually a part of human nature; the perpetual assessment of "why."

The question of "why" isn't necessarily out of greed or selfishness, it's our brains' natural way of making choices - professional, personal,…

From the Trenches - Remembering Johnny Walker


It was 1978 in Ohio and I was a new car salesman.  I was selling Chrysler Imperials and New Yorkers at a time when there was an energy crises.  It was tough and I would not last long.  But I learned something during that short time in the car business.

There was a fella, much older than I, but younger than I am…

To-Dos, Tasks, and Reminders... or Opportunities?

Another manager asked me, "What's Tommy up to today?" I looked up and said, "I'm working on my tasks." He replied with a sigh, "Yeah, they never go away, do they?"

I started to agree with him and then thought about it and told him, "They're not supposed to."

All CRM systems have what they call "To-Dos" or "Tasks" or "Reminders". They sound like such a chore. It's like my wife's to-do list or reminding me that I promised to clean the garage this weekend. I hear many… Continue

It’s in the Presentation

Life inside the dealership is an experience only those who have been there can appreciate. Whether you are in sales or service, each department carries its own unique challenges. Let’s face it, the job is monotonous. And, after every successful month, you get the pleasure of starting from zero once again. So, what can you do to be successful?

Most would agree that the answer lies in your people skills, technique and ability to adopt a mindset that stops you from falling into a “move…

3 Step Improvement Plan

Let’s explore a simple 3-step approach that will help improve any dealership department.

1. What am I doing now?

Do you clearly understand the road to revenue or process flow from origination to transacting business?

For example, are customers handled the same way every time by every salesperson? How detailed is that instruction? Is every phone call answered the same way? Are the sales techniques the same for everyone interacting with customers? (Note, I’m not…

No Traffic on the Extra Mile

Now, we’re all familiar with the line, “There’s no business like show business.” Well, I wouldn’t personally know if that’s true or not, but I can say from firsthand experience that there is no business like the car business — not just for the controversy and characters, but for the triumphs as well.

In the car business, you have a group of people that range from the dealer principal to the lot attendant, who earns a living and gets some satisfaction from a job well done. On the sales…
