Learning about the DISC model, helped me to find my strong points and weakness and what improvement is needed. Also dealing with different personalities.
Georgia, my instructor, was very engaging and made the course easy to understand.
Being an advisor, this was a lot to take in and I absolutely wouldn’t change it! Georgia was amazing and very personable. Thank you!
Highly recommend, the interaction with the instructors was awesome. I will take what I have learned and put it to use on day one. Thank you for all your help.
Was a great experience, lots of great information. Looking forward to the next class.
Enjoyed class and was very informative.  Would like to see extended another day to get even more info. I feel as a manager or possible manager, this should be a required class. To be successful you need tools, and this is that tool.  Great class!!
Amazing class and instructor that will definitely shape my future and the success I can bring to my dealership. A game changer for your managers!
