team objectives, Implementers have it covered. Their responsibilities might not always be glamourous, but everything falls apart without them. Facilitator – Teams are made up of people with different mindsets and approaches that can come into conflict. Facilitators are the glue that holds things together; they manage relationships within the team and externally, and they make sure people have the required support.

Understanding team roles can improve team results

Eric Baker, Caliper Corporation

A business team is a strange entity. You can gather all the right experts and specialists, put all the accountabilities in place, and even set the ground rules for how to manage meetings and handle conflict … and still end up with dysfunction. Given the increasing importance of cross-functional teamwork across all industries, it has never been more important for organizations to figure out what’s working and what isn’t and to take steps toward improving team efficiency and effectiveness. If you really want the results you’re looking for, take the time to explore and define team roles. Team roles are different from assignments. Each team member has an agreed-upon set of responsibilities, of course, but team roles are organic and relate to the “health” of the team as an entity. An unhealthy team is one where people are continuously frustrated or are struggling to deliver, and the results suffer accordingly. Fortunately, this (metaphorical) illness can be cured when people are placed into the team roles for which they are best suited. Those roles include Champion, Creator, Implementer, and Facilitator. Let’s look at each in turn: Champion – These are the people who promote ideas, rally the group, and drive change. They tend to focus on the big-picture goals. Without them, teams often lack vision and direction. Creator – Creators generate ideas, design solutions, and welcome creative challenges. They tend to be about action rather than talk, and a team without Creators may struggle to deliver innovation. Implementer – When it comes to the daily work activities and administration required to make good on 6

Your team role is determined by a combination of your thinking style (divergent vs. convergent) and work focus (people vs. tasks). This graphic helps visualize it. Do you have a sense of where you might fit? Divergent thinkers tend to approach problems creatively (“What are all the possible solutions?”), whereas convergent thinkers are inclined to approach problems logically (“What’s the ideal solution?”). Divergent thinkers are usually more inventive. Convergent thinkers are typically more efficient at making practical decisions. When you combine divergent thinking with a people orientation, you’ll get the Champion described above. Switch out people orientation with a task orientation, and you’ll get a Creator. And so on. These distinctions are critical to several aspects of team effectiveness: • If a team has too many of one team role and not enough of another, the team has a talent gap. Depending on the gap, you may lack a rallying voice and a vision (not enough Champions); struggle to meet complex business challenges and adapt to change (not enough Creators); fall short of quality expectations and leave loose ends (not enough Implementers); or break off into less collaborative factions (not enough Facilitators). • If people are in the wrong roles (Creators having to act as Facilitators, for example), those team members will not be playing to their strengths and could be both unhappy and ineffectual. • If you are aware of your role and what you bring to the team, and discover others’ roles and what they bring, it becomes easier to understand where people are coming from and the value they offer. That last point is relevant even if the first two have already been addressed (i.e., your team is balanced and everyone is serving in their ideal role). An Implementer, by nature, is about process and systems and is often immersed in spreadsheets and files and

Cover Story schedules, perhaps looking at Champions and thinking, “That person does a lot of talking. Meanwhile, I’m doing all the work.” At the same time, the Champion is busy seeking organizational commitment and negotiating for budgets and resources without realizing how the agreements and compromises they make could lead to upheaval and additional work. By seeking a more meaningful understanding of each other’s roles, both the Champion and the Implementer can act more responsibly and respectably. The same goes for Creators and Facilitators and other combinations of roles. Ultimately, it’s about improving team health through self-awareness and learning how to meet in the middle.  

corner and people who land near a line between two quadrants. The insights you gain from identification and analysis of team roles can be the key that unlocks the door to true collaboration and teamwork. You’ll come up with better solutions, improve employee engagement, and finally address your most challenging business needs.

Based on each team member’s unique blend of personality traits, they’ll land somewhere on the convergent/divergent scale in regard to thinking style and somewhere between task oriented and people oriented in terms of work approach. The next step is finding a way to use that information for improving team effectiveness. Plot your entire team into quadrants on the 4-Box, enabling you to see the breakdown of Champions, Creators, Implementers, and Facilitators. It also shows your group’s distributions in thinking styles, people skills, and task focus as well as individual team members’ strengths and limitations in those areas. This report can be a revelation for your team. Not only do you see what’s missing overall (too few people in one quadrant, for example, or too many in another), but you also discover which team members are in the wrong roles. Once the nuances of the results become clear, you’ll also notice the differences, within a quadrant, between people who plot in the extreme

Aftermarket Dave Baiocchi

Managing your image Challenges that affect our business consist of three basic elements. Things you have no control over, things you have limited control over and things that are completely under your control. Understanding and coming to accept these items takes time, patience and a measure of courage. Some things just happen TO you. Taxes have to be paid. State or Federal regulations have to be adhered to. Your best customer files for bankruptcy. Somebody just t-boned your newest service van. Other challenges can be affected by your decisions and actions • Insurance rates (do you have a safety program?) • Utility bills (put a lock box on the thermostat) • Interest Expenses (control your inventory) • Receivables aging (tighten your credit standards) Some items are COMPLETLEY within our control • Staffing levels

While we are doing all that we can to create and cultivate our value message, we many times ignore very visible but often overlooked areas where our message of quality and value can be supported. I want to touch on two of these things that are ALWAYS in view of the customer, and they either support or detract from the hallmarks of quality and value that you are seeking to build. Uniforms Nearly all dealerships provide some level of uniform garments for their staff. Our dealership provided shirts, pants and coveralls through a local uniform vendor. The uniform business is much maligned in our industry, and for good reason. The sales promises made by uniform companies are seldom kept. We are entrusting our image to a vendor whose profitability is based on getting the maximum wear out of a garment. We on the other hand are expecting that this supplier will replace garments that don’t connote the image of quality and value we want to portray.

•T  he tools we use to convey our image (people, and advertising).

The goals of the dealership, and the goals of the uniform supplier are really at cross purposes. The very nature of the motivations on both sides of the transaction create an adversarial relationship. You want your men to look better, but the uniform vendor wants you to put up with how they look, to get maximum wear out of the garment.

Since we can do little about the first two categories listed above, this month, I want to focus only on items that, by and large, are totally under our control. As a business you have the unique opportunity to create, support and promote the image you want your customers to have. Like it or not, customers have an opinion of your company, and its standing in the marketplace. Customers arrive at this image based on what they observe, how they are treated and how well we communicate with them. We have spent a great deal of time this year talking about all of the customer engagement factors that help to build the image of your dealership in the mind of the customer. We have discussed crafting a definable value proposition and using both internal and external venues to communicate this value message to both employees and customers.

There are ways this relationship can be managed, in order to motivate both sides toward alternative goals. One way would be to arrange your agreement to include mandatory replacement garments as part of the initial negotiation. Let’s say that six months after a new agreement is signed, the uniform vendor is duty bound to prove that they had replaced 10% of all rental garments every calendar quarter. This would cycle all garments over the period of 2.5 years; a much faster cycle than they normally want to see. Yes, costs would be higher, but your image would be protected! How valuable is that to your organization? I’d be willing to spend 20% more for uniforms, if I was perpetually proud of the way the crew looked every day. If all of the companies competing for the business had to provide the same level of compliance and service, you should be able to negotiate a pretty good deal

Aftermarket anyway. Having a compulsory replacement policy will actually allow the uniform vendor to have the latitude to deliver on what they promise. They now have the tools to care for your image. You can also use purchase incentives to sweeten the deal. Uniform companies sell more than just uniforms. All of the companies we dealt with offered janitorial supplies, carpet runners, mops and buckets, hand towels, toilet paper, hand soap, shop rags, cleaning supplies, first aid kits and promotional items from hats, to shirts, to jackets, to belt buckles. Some dealerships purchase these items from the uniform company in addition to uniform rentals. There are however probably some, if not many, of those items that the dealership acquires from other suppliers. What if we tied the purchase of these items from the uniform company to their willingness to increase replacement rental garments? Leveraging the purchase of these promotional items could be a way not only mitigate overall costs, but also consolidate vendors, while securing your image. As great as clean uniforms are, its even more important for the crew to actually wear them. This should be mandatory. At minimum, every tech should have a company shirt and a clean hat with a company logo. Hats get dirty quickly, and yes, they are an expense, but consider that it’s the first thing your customer sees. A technician showing up in a greasy worn out hat just does not support the image you are trying to build. Rolling billboards Service vans are expensive to acquire, expensive to equip and expensive to operate. One of the ways we can get a little value for the money we invest in rolling stock is to properly use the visible surfaces of the van as an advertising medium. Many of you already do this. Vehicle wrapping has become very popular and costs are reasonable for the quality and visual appeal that normally results from a good wrap. The visual image portrayed by your service vans should do three things. 1. Promote a unified image. The colors, the content and the theme of the graphics should be similar. They don’t have to be identical, but they should fit a visual standard that supports the image you want to portray. 12

www.MHWmag.com

August 2018

2. Include contact information that is clear and definable. This isn’t just passive image advertising. It should be designed to have people contact you. Both your website and your phone numbers should be prominently displayed. 3. Sell something tangible. Offer one thing of value that would motivate a customer contact. This is where you can show some differences between the vans. Each van can have its own unique message. • We carry pallet rack in stock – call for a quote •L  et us train your lift truck operators – contact us for information • Pallet jacks for as low as $295.00 – always in stock •T  ires that pay for themselves with the fuel they save – contact us •W  e rent forklifts by the day, week or month – delivery available All this said, one thing I have observed is that less is more. Don’t get too wordy or try to put too much sales messaging on the van. One tangible item of value is really all that is needed. A litmus test might be to look at your vans with a critical eye. Ask yourself, is this really the image we want representing our company? Sometimes it’s a thin line between sharp and obnoxious. One last item. The sharpest looking truck in the world is wasted money if it’s dirty. This is an image killer. If you don’t have a system of accountability to ensure that your vehicles show up clean at the customer’s place of business every day, you may as well not wrap them at all. Image many times is difficult to manage. There are so many things that can affect it. It is however something that we do have a measure of control over. It’s up to us to continually care for it, promote it, protect it and use it to add value to all of our other customer offerings. Dave Baiocchi is the president of Resonant Dealer Services LLC.

Bottom Line Garry Bartecki

Time for a check up Time to do some of that financial stuff! •C  omplete internal financial statements and supporting schedules for June and then Q2. •T  ime to review actual results against the plan for 2018. •T  ime to update the plan for the rest of the year with specific goals in mind. •T  ime to review new and used sales results to see which sales personnel need help. •T  ime to check out what inventory you have and what you have ordered for the rest of the year. •T  ime to review the rental fleet to see which units will be turning over within the next 12 months. •T  ime to decide which rental units should be sold off. •T  ime to set aside some time to study what technology you can make use of to make the company more profitable and easier to do business with •T  ime to study what the competition is doing in terms of new technology.

Some will apply to you and some not. But there are about 30 major changes you need to consider seeing how your tax situation will change for 2018. Doing this NOW gives you about six months to do some planning to mitigate negative results. DO IT! For those of you thinking you will just switch to a C-Corp to avoid the whole tax personal tax issue….. STOP THINKING THAT….. In most cases the total cost of doing the switch will not offset any additional tax you may pay now. And, we all know that the tax laws change regularly, and you would not want to make the costly change to a C-Corp and then have the reason you changed disappear because they changed the law again. Back to the covenant issue. Management should take an interest in the covenant calculations because if things are tight it may cause a change in plans. There are normally two covenants dealers need to contend with: Fixed Charge Coverage and Maximum Total Funded Debt to EBITDA

Both calculations use the same calculated EBITDA number which is usually a trailing 12-month (TTM) • Time to consider getting an annual appraisal calculation, which follows a formula developed by the report for rental units as well as used equipment bank for your personal situation. The point I want to inventory. make is that the TTM figure is net of special situations • It is also time to prepare reports required by your and other normalizing adjustments. So, you want to be banks, primarily financial covenants regarding debt certain you understand how the formula was developed service coverage ratios as well as debt to equity and if any further changes are required. ratios. Fixed Charge Coverage is the adjusted EBITDA •A  nd finally, it is time to get the management team together to discuss what has happened so far and what to expect for the balance of the year.

for the TTM/debt service requirements for the same period. This calculation is one management wants to pay attention to because when the coverage is close to the bank’s minimum it is time to come up with a plan I want to get into the covenants a bit more, but before I do that I want to remind you again to ask your to improve the situation before you wind up blowing a covenant which requires a waiver to avoid a default accountant to run an estimate of your 2018 tax return on the loan. In short, this is a GOOD COVENANT using the 2017 data they just used to prepare your 2017 return or an estimate you can give them for 2018 because it has the company’s best interest to avoid cash including changes in rental assets (bought purchases and flow problems. deletions.) Preparing an estimate for a C-Corp should The Total Funded Debt to EBITDA covenant is be straight forward, but for flow-through entities it is the banks way of stopping you from taking on more an entirely different matter. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act debt than you can handle. It is calculated as Total made significant changes to tax rules for individuals. Funded Debt/Adjusted EBITDA for the TTM. It 14

Bottom Line will probably fall into the 5-7 times range. While meaningful I normally don’t get too excited about this one if the Fixed Charge Coverage is within the covenant limit, BUT……THIS SITUATION COULD CHANGE DRAMATICALLY ONCE THE NEW LEASE ACCOUNTING RULES ARE REQUIRED TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR. Even though the new lease accounting rules don’t take effect until 2019 for non-public companies it is time to start estimating where you will be should you have to capitalize all your leases and start a dialog with the bank on what they expect you to do to comply with the new rules and what their policy will be in applying the new lease rules with existing customers. For many of you it is entirely possible you will be in violation of the one or the other of these annual covenants if you add a significant number to the liability side of your balance sheet.

adjustments to use to improve covenant results. And finally, this meeting would also be good time to discuss how customers will treat leases related to your longterm fleets. So, look at where you stand now in term of covenants and then plan out what you will look like after the new rules take effect. Doing this work now will also help you understand what our customers will be asking for to calculate the impact of your leases on their books. Garry Bartecki is a CPA MBA with GB Financial Services LLC. E-mail editorial@mhwmag.com to contact Garry.

I suggest that dealers selling one OEM’s product get together to decide how to deal with this issue so that the accounting between them is somewhat standardized. It would also be a good exercise to find

Sales Trends Jeffrey Gitomer

Will the real objection please stand up! The customer says, "I object!" or does he? Is it the true objection, a stall, or a lie? Euphemistically called objection or concern, it's actually the real reason a prospect won't buy now. What the prospect or customer is really saying is, "You haven't sold me yet." The prospect is actually requesting more information or more reassurance. There are very few actual objections. Most are just stalls. This is further complicated by the fact that buyers will often hide the true objection. Why? They don't want to hurt your feelings, they are embarrassed, or they are afraid to tell the truth. A white lie is so much easier, more convenient, and less bloody than actually having to tell the truth, so they just say something to get rid of you. These are the top ten stall/white lie examples from David Letterman's home sales office in Lincoln, Nebraska:

The Dealers’ Source For Portable RacksTM

1. I want to think about it. 2. We've spent our budget. 3. I have to talk it over with my partner, wife, cat, mistress, broker, lawyer, accountant, shrink. 4. I need to sleep on it. 5. I never purchase on impulse – I always give it time to sink in. 6. G  et back to me in 90 days, we'll be ready by then. 7. I'm not ready to buy yet. 8. Quality is not important to me. 9. Business is slow right now. 10. Our ad agency handles that. So, what is a true objection? Most true objections are never stated. 90% of the time when the prospect says "I want to think it over," or gives you a stalling line, it really means he or she... • Doesn't have the money. • Can't get the credit needed or can't afford it. • Can't decide on his or her own.

• Saves valuable floor space for other use.

•D  oesn't have authority to spend without budget, prior or someone else's approval.

• Supports thousands of pounds.

•T  hinks (or knows) he can get a better deal elsewhere.

• Move more material with fewer moves.

• Has something else in mind, but won't tell you. •H  as a friend, connection or satisfactory relationship in the business.

• Stacks 4-5 high. • Nest or knock down when empty.

• Wants to shop around.

• Custom designs are our specialty.

•D  oesn't need (or thinks he doesn't need) your product now.

Stock program available on some sizes & designs.

• Thinks (or knows) your price is too high. • Doesn't like your product. • Doesn't like or trust your company.

• Doesn't like or trust you. Qualifying the objection and overcoming the objection are of equal importance. Finding the real


Sales Trends objection is the first order of business. Then, and only then, is successfully overcoming it and making a sale possible. You can overcome an objection perfectly, but if it isn't the real objection, you'll be shaking your head wondering why the sale hasn't been made. When you get an objection, you must qualify that it is true and the only one. The problem is most salespeople are not able to get to the true objection, and are not prepared to overcome objections when they occur. Why?

Part two next week is a seven step method of identifying, qualifying and overcoming any objection. Qualifying the objection and overcoming the objection are of equal importance. Jeffrey Gitomer is the author of twelve best-selling books including The Sales Bible, The Little Red Book of Selling, and The Little Gold Book of Yes! Attitude. His real-world ideas and content are also available as online courses at www.GitomerLearningAcademy.com. For information about training and seminars visit www.Gitomer.com  or email Jeffrey at editorial@mhwmag.com.

• They lack the technical (product) knowledge. • They lack the sales tools. • They lack the sales knowledge. • They lack the self-confidence. •T  hey have not prepared in advance (often for the same objection they've heard ten times before.) • Their presentation is lacking.

FOR MORE SALES TRENDS ARTICLES GO TO www.MHWmag.com

Or any combination of the above. The price is too high - is the classic sales objection. To overcome it, you must find out what the prospect actually means or how high is too high. Assuming he/she wants to buy now, there are actually four meanings to this objection: • Your price is too high... I can't afford it. •Y  our price is too high... I can buy it elsewhere cheaper (or better). •Y  our price is too high... I don't want to buy from you (or your company). •Y  our price is too high... I don't see, perceive, or understand the cost or value of your product or service. About half the time you get a price objection you will not make the sale. The other side of that coin says that 50% of the time you hear a price objection, you have a shot at a sale, and the prospect can be sold with the right words or phrases.

WIT Foundation awards thirteen scholarships The Women In Trucking (WIT) Foundation is proud to announce the selection of thirteen recipients of its scholarship program, providing $1,000 each to winners to further their careers in the trucking industry. The awardees come from across the U.S. and are enrolled in schools or training programs in categories of driving, leadership, safety or technical fields of study. Four of the thirteen are using the money to earn a Commercial Drivers License (CDL), which will help address a critical shortage of drivers facing the industry. Significant contributors to the WIT Foundation include the Ryder Charitable Foundation, UPS and the J.J. Keller Foundation, which gave a grant in the name of a longstanding employee, Jan Hamblin. The recipient of the Jan Hamblin scholarship is Perla Acuña, who is studying for a Masters in Integrated Supply Chain Management at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. The next round of applications for scholarships will open in August www.womenintruckingfoundation.org

AAR applauds federal grant to improve Chicago rail traffic Edward R. Hamberger, president and CEO of the Association of American Railroads (AAR), issued the following statement in response to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) decision to award $132 million in federal funding for the Chicago Region Environmental and Transportation Efficiency (CREATE) Program’s 75th Street Corridor Improvement Project (CIP). This project will address one of the most congested points in the U.S. rail network by improving traffic flow through the region and freight efficiency across the nation. Each day, nearly 500 freight trains — with over 37,000 railcars — and 760 passenger trains pass through the region. For 150 years, Chicago has remained the nation’s busiest rail hub and the world’s third most active rail intermodal hub, moving 25 percent of U.S. freight rail traffic and 46 percent of all intermodal traffic that begins, ends or travels through Chicago. When 24

completed, the CREATE program is estimated to add 44,000 jobs and generate $31.5 billion in economic benefits over the next three decades. Additionally, CREATE will allow the region to handle up to 50,000 more freight trains by 2051. www.aar.org

Timely shipment delivery a major concern for US transporters American Trucking Association reports that more than 70% of freight in the US is moved by trucks. The industry currently hires close to 1.46M drivers but is still falling short in order to meet rising demand due to the increase in online shopping. The unyielding increase of eCommerce is posing a huge challenge for freight forwarders, transport and logistics companies to find capacity and ensure timely delivery. The shortage of roughly 50,000 truck drivers across the country is hitting both retailer’s wallets and consumer experience. Retailers are experiencing delayed shipments and incurring higher costs to have goods delivered on time. Retailers risk losing out on the busy shopping period, if delivery timeframes are not met.  To offset truck shortages and counter thinning margins driven by Amazon’s influence on the delivery market, legacy logistics and transport companies are facing increasing pressure to become more efficient. Logistics and transport companies are partnering with technology experts for deployment of Robotics Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions to boost cost savings and better facilitate the flow of goods throughout the world's largest consumer market. www.intelenetglobal.com

Keeping an eye on batteries and chargers - key to forklift safety AMETEK Prestolite Power is reminding material handling industry participants at all levels about the need to put safety first in their forklift fleet – as well as their batteries and chargers – within all operations. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the most common forklift injuries occur when workers are hit, struck, crushed or pinned by the vehicle or fall from one.  Also at the top of the list are burns and electrocutions resulting from accidental fires, explosions and mishaps involving lift truck batteries and chargers. In addition to ensuring a warehouse has proper in-house safety signage, forklift operators need to make sure to assign staff members to a safety team to ensure compliance with local, state and federal regulations. www.prestolitepower.comd
