Everybody wants to find good management to help their dealership to grow and be more profitable. But what do we mean by a good manager? Different people come with different talents. Some managers may be great at motivating staff. Other managers are great at forecasting and organizing. A good manager combines all these skills to create an environment where people thrive, and products move.

The automotive industry was forecast to have a rough 2018. That has not entirely been the case. Automotive sales are up, especially in the used market as many vehicles come off lease. Consumers have drifted to utility vehicles partially driven by the trend in the “reduce, reuse, recycle” mindset and partly driven by people’s need to camp, hike, and get outside with their family. Good managers are aware of these trends and adapt their business practices to take advantage of them.

Good managers also know how to utilize their staff to increase productivity. Managers who let people “do what they do best” and praise employees for their innovation and work see higher employee satisfaction and less turnover. And keeping good employees generally costs much less money than having to advertise, hire, and train new employees.

Since the automotive industry changes with consumer confidence and trends, it’s important to have a management team in place that’s able to innovate.
