RVDA convention logoAttendees at the 2016 RV Dealers International Convention Expo can learn ways to unleash their employees’ personal best in an hour-long education workshop in the Dealer/GM track on Nov. 10 conducted by David Spader of Spader Business Management.

According to a press release, “The Passionate RV Leader” workshop requires brief advance online coursework that can be found at www.cor5.com. Participants can create an account and complete the free “Work Interests” assessment in the tab under their name. Attendees should print the assessment and bring it to the workshop.

In this workshop, Spader will show participants how passionate employees, led by passionate leaders, can produce outstanding results. Participants will explore one of the most important personal attributes that affects leadership effectiveness and how to find a role best suited to their passions.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • The true cost of passion-less leaders (and employees).
  • The three types of workplace motivations, and how to use them effectively.
  • How to best leverage your top two passions.
  • How to predict whether someone will be passionate about their job (including yourself).
  • Why Style (DISC) is NOT enough for a successful job fit.
  • How to manage the two types of work that could sink your career.

The convention is sponsored by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), RVDA of Canada, and the Mike Molino RV Learning Center. Each year the Convention/Expo Committee focuses on featuring new presenters to keep the content relevant and fresh for dealers.

The theme of the convention/expo is “Gear Up for Success,” and it takes place Nov. 7-11 at Bally’s in Las Vegas. This is the premier education event for North American dealers and their top staff.

The convention will also feature an expo of the RV industry’s top companies offering products and services to help dealers improve profitability.
