Do The Right Thing | Graham Auto Repair Essential #1

Do The Right Thing | Graham Auto Repair Essential #1

At Graham Auto Repair we have 24 Team Essentials. These are words we live by. We use these essentials in the way we communicate with each other on a daily basis. If we see someone who is exemplifying one of our essentials, we celebrate! Likewise, if someone is struggling with one of our essentials - we use that as an opportunity to communicate and grow. One way that we celebrate success is by giving each other Stars! “Integrity is not about convenience. It’s an unwavering commitment to do the right thing in every action and every decision we make; even when no one’s looking. Make decisions that build strong, trusting relationships.” Let’s talk about Essential #1: Integrity Sadly, the Automotive Industry has not always been known for its Integrity. Whether we are talking about automotive sales, insurance, repair, or maintenance: there is an underlying fear that you may be taken advantage of. At Graham Auto Repair it is our goal to change that, one se ... read more
