Combining the high-performance history of RLO Training's Bottom Line Impact Groups and the Institute's SMART Groups, the GEAR Performance Groups (GPG) are so much more than your traditional automotive 20s groups. The Institute's groups are focused on creating a community of elite automotive professionals backed by industry-leading education and training.
When you're a GPG member, we'll help you:
Increase your profits
Create custom strategies for your business
