Key Talking Points

  • Ethics means doing what is right, not what is easy. 
  • Integrity: Doing the right thing even when nobody is looking.
  • The hard part is that “ethical” is so subjective. There will never be one iron-clad “ethics manual” because one’s ethics are based on so many factors such as Upbringing, culture, faith, tradition, etc.
  • Guide customers and be transparent- the value proposition is based on integrity and ethics
  • DVI’s- adds to ARO and gives customers a report they deserve 
  • What is your shop’s character? How do you care about your customer's and employees' safety?
  • "Rules of Engagement" - identify what you want instead of focusing on what you don’t want 
  • Ask the right questions- “discovery conversation” building trust
  • Ethics are continually evolving due to many factors such as technology, changing societal norms, science, hard lessons, etc.
  • Ethics as it applies to automotive service: Pricing, Employee Compensation, Warranty: how much do you need to cover in the case of a part failure that you won’t be reimbursed for?
  • Continue to lead by example
