Key Talking Points

  • Women are more compassionate service advisors
  • Pairing the same generation of technicians together (when training/apprenticeship) makes communication better and improves learning.
  • If you have respect for other technicians and shop owners, you’re not going to hire their technician or their service advisor. Instead they would come to the shop if they were planning to leave the other shop.
  • You’re building loyalty by training your employees; you’re trusting them. If you are doing that, they’re not looking elsewhere. But if you’re not giving them that, and that’s something that motivates them, they’re gonna go across the street.
  • Make decisions for your team, not for yourself
