As a young professional, I dreamed of becoming a Dealership Sales Manager. Have you heard the phrase – “Be careful what you wish for?” That phrase rang true on my first day managing a new team at a dealership. I had worked hard hitting sales objectives to get the promotion. I was ready to get results. But there was one problem. I had the ability to sell and the desire to manage, but no one had invested the time to teach me the leadership and management skills I needed to be successful. Fortunately, I had a great role model and mentor to help me through that transition. It was a slow and bumpy start. However, through hard work I eventually became a partner in a car dealership.
