Showcase: People / Auto Staffing Process Intensive TWO

Turnaround Tour ShopPros Showcase: People / Auto Staffing Process Intensive 2“Preparing for People / Auto Staffing Process Intensive TWO”

How many aspirins do you take per day for people issues and concerns?  Would you like to take less? Would you care to become aspirin-FREE quickly?

Let’s expand our aspirin usage a little further concerning people.  We have found people issues come from your existing staff not doing what you think they should be doing. Perhaps they don’t know exactly what they are held accountable for. Have you told them you love them lately? Always finding fault is a bad way to go. Maybe you have not done the proper training.

We also hear the greatest moaning and groaning from shop owners about their people, particularly in finding and keeping them.  Our People / Auto Staffing Process Intensive is the cure for the pain in finding and retaining people.

Jim Rykman writes a note about the first People / Auto Staffing Process series:

Your work (Norm and Gary) is absolutely top-notch. Most of us got in the business to wrench, not to PAHR. What a massive mind-shift you have caused in me.   

What will be your story?  Come listen then decide to join People / Auto Staffing Process Intensive webinar series, which starts August 26, 2014.
