Description:   Beyond all of the clever marketing, interactive displays and shined up floors, the success or failure of every brick and mortar business is determined by just one thing… the quality of its people.  This is what will determine whether the customer will feel understood or underwhelmed, whether their cars will be done right the first time or maybe the second… or third and whether they will give you a 5 star review or complain that they can’t give less than 1 star!  With so much riding on the quality of our people, why don’t we talk about personal development?  In this class, I will share with you a proven process that you can use to identify and overcome the negative habits and behaviors that keep you from performing your best in your personal as well as your work life so that you can achieve real and lasting success in both!

Description: We all know that, when all else is equal, the customer will buy from the lowest price. So that begs the question; what can you do to tip the scales in your favor? When you can’t match the marketing budget of the local big box, can’t offer two day shipping on any product your customer wants and you know you can’t survive being the lowest price in town, what can you do? The one thing that money can’t buy, is available immediately, invaluable and not available online is the quality of the experience the customer has in your store. In this class, you’ll learn processes and procedures that will organize every step of the customer’s experience in your store, increasing your value proposition, their satisfaction and employee morale.
