In my article The Process of Winning (see Autobody News, June 2014 edition or in my column section of the Autobody News website) I briefly explained why it is important for collision shop leaders to reward the vital behaviors that contribute to a proven process being carefully followed instead of only offering incentives for end results.

I received a call last month from a dear friend of mine on the West Coast. I’ll call him Paul here, but that’s not his real name. His voice was shaky and he was clearly upset.

Until I learned the true secret to winning, I thought I knew all about the subject. I was totally wrong. I had a lot to learn. Now I’ve discovered the real sources of success, in both business and sports.
