The Manager Performance Groups (MPG) take the same principles as our leading GEAR Performance Groups and apply them to the automotive manager.
Led by an experienced facilitator and assisted by individual coaching, the program uses an online modular curriculum, character and skill assessments, and financial and performance analytics to help automotive managers reach their potential.
The MPG creates a community of automotive professionals that is backed by industry-leading education and training, while offering support and inspiration for its members.
When you're a MPG member, we'll help you:
Increase your leadership skills
Foster an environment of growth
Have support for every decision
"About a year ago...we were right about 640K a year. With the owner and myself coming to these meetings and coming to the Institute, this year we're going to be really close to 1.1 million.
Our percentages are where they need to be and we were really able to stop and look at where we were falling short and where we needed to focus on. And I say we have to credit that to the Institute."
- John Hirschmann, Manager at

Eric Bauer, Manager at Japanese Car Care
(The MPG) has helped a lot and filled a lot of the gaps we should have been doing. It's a great opportunity and the industry has been needing something like this.
Eric Thayer, Former Manager at Sterling Car Care
The benefits are huge. There's lots of other training programs that do somewhat similar things. But with my experience - 25+ years in this industry - and getting to know the whole group here, it's a wealth of knowledge and worth every penny... And it's a great investment in your team.
Chris Bush, Manager at Simard Automotive
We're going to be able to take this back - especially with the multi-stores and coach(ing) junior managers - and have the tools to do that well while we make the industry better and make customer's lives better.
