9.16 - Technician Communication - The Daily Huddle: Why on earth would anyone bring their fleet and technicians into a company daily to conduct a huddle? Its expensive, and it wears out my fleet, the time I have to pay for, the depreciation of the trucks, gasoline and the many other reasons we create as fear as a barrier are reasons to NOT do a daily huddle with technicians. If we evaluate the costs its about $7.00 per call per technician, so raise the prices $7.00 and lets talk about how to do a daily huddle so we can sell more equipment or lead turnovers, more accessories, improve communications, control mindset, enhance brand and look, re-inventory trucks daily. Use this video to get out of the fear zone and into the growth zone.
