Karen Bradley, CEO of Dealer Synergy, was featured on the Autobytel Training Series Webinar April 18th, 2017. Karen is a certified FranklinCovey Trainer and Facilitator as she trains dealerships across the country.

There is a reason why “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” curriculum, written by the late Stephen R. Covey, is taught to over 65% of all Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 corporations. Additionally, there are over 6 Million people globally trained on the the “7 Habits”, with over 35 million book copies sold worldwide, making it the #1 non-fiction book of all time. The “7 Habits” focuses on time management, leadership, organization, communication and teaches you how to truly achieve Work / Life balance. I have spent a lot of time in dealerships and teaching this course and I cannot tell you how often I hear people say that they never have any time left over for themselves. They are used to putting themselves last. Their health has even suffered!! They eat poorly...if they eat at all and there is definitely no time for physical fitness. They work super long hours, have kids to be a parent to and even spending time with their families is difficult to accomplish. And friends? What are those?? I promise you that there is a better way. A way where you can achieve it all! Time to work and achieve objectives. Quality time for your kids. Time for your friends and especially, time for yourself! It all boils down to being effective!

If you work in a dealership, you know how chaotic it can be. Often times, it is difficult to distinguish the priorities from all of the noise. You invest 8, 10, even 12 hours of your day only to leave feeling like you got nothing accomplished. Also, it’s no secret there is a serious problem in the automotive industry with attrition! Our industry is plagued with mediocrity. You see it on the Showroom sales floor, in F&I, in Service, in the Internet Sales Dept and BDC… it’s everywhere! And if you are NOT in the automotive Industry...I’m sure you can still relate!! And this webinar is for you too! If you want to learn how to do more, be more and achieve more, you need to understand the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and how they can literally transform your LIFE! Register today and be well on your way to personal and professional effectiveness!

I was recently onsite at a Dealership client in Michigan and was PLEASANTLY surprised to see that the ENTIRE management team was immersed in the 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People Training! Every week they read a new chapter and discuss it in the Manger's Meeting. When I came to the dealership to train they were on habit 6... "SYNERGY"! They were so kind to invite me to share some of my thoughts and knowledge as a FranklinCovey Trainer and I had such an amazing time explaining my interpretation of Dr.Covey's message.

This video is of me "free styling" my thoughts about the 6th Habit and how it all comes together.

ABOUT the "5 Choices of Extraordinary Productivity".  

1. Act on the Important, Don't React to the Urgent - In today's world, people are drowning in email, overwhelmed with demands, and trying to do more with less. 5 Choices participants filter the vitally important priorities from distractions so they can focus on making a real contribution.

2.  Go For Extraordinary, Don't Settle for Ordinary -Everyone wants to make a difference, but competing priorities often prevent them from achieving extraordinary results. 5 Choices participants redefine their roles in terms of extraordinary results to achieve high-priority goals.

3.  Schedule the Big Rocks, Don't Sort Gravel - The crushing increase in workday pressures can make people feel helpless and out of control. 5 Choices participants regain control of their work and lives through a cadence of planning and execution that produces extraordinary outcomes.

4.  Rule Your Technology, Don't let it Rule You - An electronic avalanche of email, texts, and social-media alerts seriously threaten productivity as never before. 5 Choices participants leverage their technology and fend off distractions by optimizing platforms like Microsoft® Outlook® to boost productivity.

5.  Fuel Your Fire, Don't Burn Out - Today's exhausting, high-pressure work environment burns people out at an alarming rate. Applying the 5 Energy DriversTM, participants benefit from the latest in brain science to consistently recharge their mental and physical energy.
