5 Quotes to Inspire Your Mechanics and Employees
As the owner of an auto shop, it is important for you to inspire your mechanics and employees to be the best versions of themselves – both personally and professionally. Motivating your employees will boost their productivity, which will result in a higher satisfaction rate for your customers.
While there are many ways that you can do this, inspirational quotes are always a great go-to option. To get you started, CarCareCONNECT has put together this list of five quotes that will inspire your mechanics to do two things: 1) work their hardest in their job; and 2) do what they love outside of the shop.
“My whole career can be summed up with ‘Ignorance is bliss.’ When you do not know better, you do not really worry about failing.”
– Jeff Foxworthy
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me…Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… That’s what matters to me.”
– Steve Jobs
“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
– John Wooden
“A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.”
– Henry Ford
“It’s a never ending battle of making your cars better and also trying to be better yourself.”
– Dale Earnhardt
If you are wondering how you can implement these quotes at your auto shop, try the following ways:
- Have a quick get-together with your employees every morning before the shop opens and read out one of these quotes as the “thought for the day.”
- Print out each quote and post them in different areas of your shop. Whether in the garage, break room or waiting room, the little reminders will be appreciated by both your employees and customers!
- Social media is a great outlet to post inspirational quotes. For example, every Monday you could post a quote on your shop’s Twitter account with the hashtag, #MotivationalMonday.
- Have your mechanics provide you with their favorite quote and post them all together on a bulletin board in your shop’s garage.
