With one phone call, you can be in touch with industry leaders that can craft strategies for your toughest leadership and management challenges, and biggest opportunities. Trust WEDA’s hand-picked Elevate network of consultants to move your business forward.
Leadership and Management Consulting
The Dealer Institute is a division of WEDA staffed by qualified, experienced consultants who review and help improve the financial, operational and management health of a dealership.
Our consultants can help you create a business culture that retains staff, encourages growth and inspires ingenuity, all while creating a loyal workforce.
Through WEDA’s Dealer Institute, owners and managers build their own leadership skills through one-on-one coaching, peer-to-peer learning and customized training programs built to suit your unique business.
Leadership training from the Dealer Institute can:
- strengthen your dealership
- positively impact your organization’s culture
- build on organizational efficiencies
- add value to your customers’ experience
- improve profitability, and
- contribute to overall business success.
“We’ve chosen to go down the on-site training route. I like to have everyone in the room together, all hearing the same message. The Dealer Institute knows our industry very well, so it gets away from that canned approach you can find with other training providers out there.”
– Steven Dyck, President Western Tractor, Lethbridge, Alberta
Merger and Acquisition Integration Services
A significant merger or acquisition is the kind of deal that happens once or twice in a lifetime. It has to be done right.
