So you learned a lot of valuable skills during your last Professional Business Development class, but you just don’t have the time to implement them…now what? Simple, the In-Shop Training Support (I.T.S.) Program—that’s right, I said simple, and I meant it. This innovative program is designed to work with you at your pace, and focuses on teaching you how to take personal advantage of initiating strategies to achieve your business goals. Your needs for individual attention are IMPORTANT to us. Every shop progresses at their own pace, and priorities surface accordingly. More often than not, it's accomplishing the little tasks in our daily routine that make the biggest difference in our attitudes, performance and “bottom line” goals.
With the I.T.S. Program, our ESi personnel will work with you, one-on-one, to help you get the strategies in place to experience victories. Help with shop meetings, with employee problems, with hiring, with firing and with making the numbers work. Help with the advertising, planning and goal setting. Help prioritizing and preventing reoccurring concerns. I.T.S. has been developed with these specific goals in mind—enabling you to not only develop the “game plan,” but to also give attention to detail in your business decisions and activities on a regular basis; to assist you in integrating strategies within the daily routine; and to help you experience the victories and accomplish the goals you have set.
I.T.S. is dedicated to helping you prioritize, not compromise, to get the vital tasks handled. It's your opportunity to take advantage of the common ground solutions to industry wide problems and custom fit their application to your shop's needs! Experiencing victories and accomplishing goals you've set forth are the keys to staying motivated and succeeding.
The single most common cry of small business America has forever been "I just can't get it all done!" and the independent repair shop is no exception. The challenges to achieve all that should take place can overwhelm our day and then go home with us at night. Many times, although we are hard pressed to admit it, we need help to make things happen. Don’t keep wishing for this kind of help, just ask us!
