Course Overview

Transform Your Garage with Effective Leadership

Running an independent garage involves much more than mechanical expertise; it requires coordinating a team that varies widely in skills and motivation. Without strong leadership, managing your team can feel like an impossible challenge.

Many garage owners aspire to have a team that functions efficiently, allowing them to step back from the day-to-day and focus on growing their business. However, lacking essential leadership skills can lead to persistent conflicts, low morale, and poor performance. If this is not fixed, then these issues will affect your service quality, customer satisfaction, and, critically, your bottom line.

This course, tailored specifically for the independent garage sector, incorporates over thirty years of my industry insights. It is designed to shift your role from merely managing your garage to leading it with strategic insight and confidence. With this course, you’ll master the leadership skills that are necessary to enhance team performance and drive your business towards greater success.

Meet your Course Leader: The Garage Inspector

Hi, I’m Andy Savva and I’m obsessed with helping independent garages get more from their business.

For too long, independent garage owners and their teams have had had no support to help them grow flourishing successful businesses. I’m on a mission to change that.

Having bought and sold several garage businesses – including my flagship 14,000 sq.ft purposely built vehicle repair workshop – I know what’s holding you back from being the success you deserve to be.

Over the last few years I have been helping an increating number of garage businesses unleash their potential and move from a position of surviving, to one of thriving.

I’d love for you to join me on this journey and can’t wait to learn all about your business.
