Pick Your Plan

If you’re just looking for a one time boost in sales, this program isn’t for you. This is the most popular option with our in-house dealerships because it creates sustainable competitive advantages. We work directly with you to identify your greatest areas of opportunity, ideal number of training days and budget to create your tailor-made solution. Once your training blueprint is developed the program is then broken down into five Stages starting with an in-dealership analysis prior to the training kickoff. Throughout the program your team will have ongoing communication with a dedicated Performance Coach to maximize results and ensure accountability.

Stage One: 360° In-Dealership Assessment

We visit your dealership in person to map out your current sales and management processes. This starts by observing areas such as customer interaction, the negotiation process, long term retention and digital retailing. After meeting with the Dealer, GM, Managers and Salespeople we provide a comprehensive assessment of your strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for growth.

Stage Two: Leadership Training Kickoff

Great teams have great leaders and this is step one to creating a culture of continuous growth. Maximizing the true potential of a team doesn’t happen by accident, it happens when the coaches have the necessary skills to lead, motivate and manage their people. Every manager in the sales department, including F&I will learn how to facilitate effective training, hold productive one-on-ones, prioritize activities, desk deals and create internal motivation.

Stage Three: Sales Training Kickoff

Training is something you do, not something you did! Stage three kicks off the ongoing sales training that is designed to develop the selling skills needed to get the results you want. Throughout this process your team will learn what it takes to be successful, how to close, overcome objections, negotiate, retain customers and communicate digitally. Every manager & salesperson will participate in this training that will be held over 12 – 24 months.

Stage Four: Coaching, Execution, & Accountability

Sustainable results happen between visits. Stage Four kicks off the tools, games & competitions necessary to build teamwork. Your Performance Coach will design a custom training schedule that will be used to hold in-store training, one-on-one coaching and individual skill development between visits. They will also launch games & tools such as Heavy Hitters, Vegas Volley Line and PlayBooks to create fun, competition and consistency.

Stage Five: In-Dealership Coaching

This is where we roll up our sleeves and work side by side with your team. We work directly with your salespeople and managers on the floor to help with the execution of processes and skills. We coach your managers as they train, hold one-on-ones and work deals to make sure everyone’s on the same page. We’ll also work directly with your salespeople to help maximize their true potential by honing their skills and developing productive work habits.

Manager Workshops

If you want private in-house workshops without a long term commitment, this option is for you. We work directly with you to design the perfect training solution to accelerate skill development, enhance the customer experience and increase sales. Our private workshops will improve your team’s performance while saving the expense of traveling. Whether you’re looking for leadership training or sales training, we can make it happen.

Leading & Managing Unbreakable Teams

Your team is as good as they’ll get on their own. It’s time to become the Fearless Leader your team needs and deserves. Be the manager your team will run through a brick wall for instead of being the brick wall!

This workshop is rooted in real-world, relevant experiences that are changing, challenging and disrupting our industry. It’s highly interactive with multiple breakouts and role play sessions that increase buy-in, advance knowledge and inspire action. Participants will take a hard look in the mirror, reset expectations, reimagine their processes, and learn to maximize their most valuable resource — their people. Learn to develop a culture of accountability, prioritize your day, grow and retain your people, and use competition to bring the fun back to selling. You will walk away with an action plan of techniques, systems and processes to implement immediately so you can get results NOW!

Desking & Negotiating for Volume and Gross

The choice is simple: either negotiate from a position of strength or a position of weakness. Your desking and negotiation process will determine which position you take.

Customers are armed with more information than ever before and have become formidable negotiators, often more skilled than our people. As a result, profitability is now more difficult than in the past. It’s more critical than ever to be able to execute a successful win-win negotiation. Weak negotiating skills may be fine when the economy is rocking and people are buying cars but that doesn’t fly when we actually have to sell cars. To remain relevant and profitable it is time to rethink our desking and negotiating processes. In this workshop managers learn how to set up successful negotiations, establish accountability and create fast, frictionless transactions. When attendees return to their stores, they will have the skills, knowledge, tools, and confidence to maximize profits while increasing volume.

Train The Trainers

Your job gets easier when your people get better and the only way to get better is with an effective, purposeful and consistent training program. Training is a culture – not an event!

This course is meant for managers and trainers who are ready to create a culture of continuous improvement. This workshop isn’t for the faint of heart; it’s a hard-core, all-encompassing course filled with educational content, role-plays, drills and hands-on applications that transform great sales managers into great sales trainers. This is where managers push past their comfort zone. They will plan, prepare and execute a number of skill-based training meetings in front of the class, with coaching, feedback, and positive reinforcement following each meeting. When attendees return to their stores, they will know how to develop training sessions that create buy-in, increase retention, and generate positive change.
