The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has announced its lineup of instructors for the Thursday, May 3, training sessions at the 2018 Annual Business Meeting.

Scheduled for May 2--4, at the luxurious Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort Hotel in Orlando, the Business Meeting will feature two half-day sessions on Thursday, taking place simultaneously from 2--5 p.m. The classes are approved by the Automotive Management Institute (AMi), and students can earn six credits per class. The Thursday sessions include:


• “New for 2018: 6 Tips for Making Better Decisions,” by Maylan Newton, CEO of ESI, which is designed to teach shop owners and their staff the techniques of developing better decision-making skills.


• “Embracing Change: Take the Fear Out of Change and Establish a Mindset of Improvement,” by Richard Flint, chairman and CEO of Flint Inc., which will explore the four-phase timetable a shop goes through toward self-destruction---if it is not willing to implement change. The course also will offer specific steps shop owners must take to open their mind to improvement.
