Having a culture is not a choice, but a reality. Whether you want it or not, your store has one. It’s often challenging to define your culture, due to perspective when you’re inside the company. Your culture is shaped by the values and beliefs a group of people share. These values are impacted by your teams’ results and behaviors. These stem directly from the activity’s leaders hold their team accountable for. These are leaderships expectations! When expectations aren’t aligned with what it takes for employees to succeed, people fail. The challenge becomes a failure is often a missed expectation!

Customer Service First, Selling Second

It should go without saying, but it’s all about customer service first, and selling second. Period. While we can agree that the market and customer has changed, the reality is that when you boil it down to what truly matters, it was always customer service and it still it. This session is going to focus on the true nature of sales, namely, that you never sell a product, you can only sell a person. Some of the main objectives of this session is to overview the meet and greet, the test drive, what to do if they walk out, and what happens after they buy.
