The Value of Outside Perspective in the Service Lane

Have you heard the story of the frog that does not know his water is boiling?

We have all been this frog at one time or another, wishing we had felt the boiling water sooner!  In your auto dealership, this is the value of outside perspective in the service lane: to help identify when water is boiling, and show you how to correct it.
When you work with an automotive trainer or consultant, you are bringing a fresh set of eyes to your dealership that will provide:
  • Recognition of red flags/boiling water situations
  • Impartial insight
  • Expert recommendations
  • Short and long term, results-oriented action plans
With experience working with hundreds of car dealerships, an automotive consultant can provide valuable guidance for correcting “boiling water” situations, based on industry best practices.
In my experience, outside perspective can shed light on:
  • Customer retention mistakes and opportunities
  • Missed sales opportunities
  • Missed profit opportunities
  • Pricing inconsistencies
  • Employee engagement challenges
  • Lack of consistent, effective processes
  • Process errors
  • And more
If you can feel the water boiling at your dealership, or wonder if it might be boiling around you, contact me to learn more about consulting and training options!
