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!

The average sales person delivers 9 units per month and earns less than $50,000 annually. Furthermore, the Auto industry is hemorrhaging with Attrition. Over 70% Attrition with new hires! Yet, there are people that are averaging 30, 40 and even 50+ units per month on the Showroom Floor and earning $150,000 , $200,000 and even $350,000+ per year on the showroom floor. Why? How? What’s the difference? Simple, People that are trained properly, prepared for every situation, every scenario, that are confident and organized are going to do more, be more and achieve more. Do NOT let your people “PRACTICE” with real customers. 99% of prospects go online before they step foot into the Dealership. The average “In Market Buyer” only visits 1.2 Dealerships. The Internet and Phones are the “New Showroom”! If you have NOT set up your Internet, Phones and BDC initiative correctly or set up your CRM and TRAINED everyone in your organization thoroughly on these strategies and resources you will fail. If you do not fail, the best you can hope for is mediocrity. People are NOT an expense or a liability. The right people, properly trained are your greatest asset and what differentiates you from your competition. So invest in your business, invest in your people. Train, mentor and develop your people.
