“As far as what has meant from an end-user standpoint, I feel as if it has been such an educational and eye-opening experience. I always thought I communicated well with women but I found myself asking if I, too, brush women aside, condescending, interrupt or otherwise make them feel uncomfortable. While I’m confident that I do not, it took me aback for a moment. Quote” The full program asks us, as men in the automotive business, to turn the mirror on ourselves and to truly search deep at our character flaws in how we communicate and interact with women. No longer does she have to put up with “business as usual” or ” the boys club” and that’s certainly not the type of attitude we wish to foster., at its core, it’s about the business. It’s people, our values, and how to grow and adapt to an ever-changing customer demographic. Congratulations on having such a worthwhile program that helps. I’m proud of my certification! “
