Half-day training sessions will be offered at the Automotive Service Association (ASA) annual Business Meeting on Thursday, May 3, and Friday, May 4.
The meeting is scheduled for May 2-4, at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort Hotel in Orlando, Fla.
The training sessions on Thursday, taking place simultaneously from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., are approved by the Automotive Management Institute (AMi), and students can earn six credits per class. They include:
* “New for 2018: 6 Tips for Making Better Decisions,” by Maylan Newton, CEO of ESI, which is designed to teach shop owners and their staff the techniques of developing better decision-making skills.
* “Embracing Change: Take the Fear Out of Change and Establish a Mindset of Improvement,” by Richard Flint, chairman and CEO of Flint Inc., which will explore the four-phase timetable a shop goes through toward self-destruction – if it is not willing to implement change. The course also will offer specific steps shop owners must take to open their mind to improvement.
Friday's sessions will be announced soon. Watch this website for updates.
