Refinish Distributors Alliance (RDA), a national group of paint, body and equipment distributors, held their fifth Collision Solutions Seminar March 11-12 in Dallas. RDA members, their key people and supporting manufacturers attended a day and a half of presentations.
Kevin Wolfe, industry consultant with Leaders Way, presented “Talent Assessment: Understanding Why Smart People Underperform, and Creating Profitable and Happy Work Environments.” Steven Trapp, North American strategic accounts manager for Axalta, presented on enhancing one’s role as a distributor in delivering value-added services. The event closed with body language and unconscious persuasion expert Traci Brow who assists groups to learn tools to read others and hear “yes” more easily and more often.
“Our members and key people continue to embrace these training venues,” said Robert McKenzie Jr., executive director of RDA. “The synergies created between our members and industry partners at these events provide exciting and excellent opportunities.”
