Stop the Management Madness and Take Control of Your Service and Sales Departments

(Workshop Program!! Limited Seating)Frustrated Manager

Are you a Sales or Service Manager that is struggling with getting top performance out of your team?

We hear of struggles every day from prospective clients telling us that they cannot find good talent, and when they do, it is difficult to get them to produce consistent results.

These prospective clients are shocked to learn… It’s usually not because of their people!

The challenge exists with the Manager.

You may ask why?

Here are the Top 4 Reasons:

  1. The Manager hired the technicians and comfort advisors.  Often times, this hiring process was done without a clear vision of the team member’s skills, attitude, or past experience.
  2. The Manager trained the team members – and the manager is not trained in HOW to train effectively.
  3. The Manager is responsible for the results of the team, but may not be tracking proper metrics, or using the most effective forms of motivation based on your team’s value system.
  4. The Manager has difficulty taking action due to the paralysis caused by fear of being able to find the right people.

Because of this constant feedback we hear when we interview new clients, we have developed the Manager Series for Service Managers and Sales Managers.

This training has been developed from the years of coaching and training we have been providing to our existing clients and members.

With this training, our members have achieved results like:

  • In Athens, Georgia, Mack Chambers was a service tech with an average HVAC replacement ticket under $7,000 and a closing percentage of under 30%.  Now, his average ticket is over $12,000 and his closing percentage is over 60%.  
  • Last year, Steve’s Plumbing produced over $2,600,000 in sales with 4 plumbers.  Richard Saxton has already produced $85,000 in the first month of the year.   All of the Steve’s Plumbing guys were highly trained on the actions that produced results, and are being held accountable by the Management Principles taught in this program.

Results like these have been achieved as a direct result of this training we are providing in The Manager Series.

If you are tired of the excuses and are ready to take control of your operation, register now!
