About The K-Method Academy
The K-Method Academy was created to provide the dealership business model with a much needed source of formal and structured training with the emphasis on the core skills, systems and processes the employee needs to know to be effective at their jobs daily.
Our mission is to provide the tools, training and resources to facilitate the on-going development and continuous education of dealership professionals.
The Academy’s goal is to make training more accessible and affordable for the individual professional looking to improve, as well as organizations looking to implement a professional development initiative for its employees.
What We Do
K-Method Academy is a Complete Workforce Training Strategy & a powerful Human Resource tool.
This tool promotes continuous learning through its ease of use and flexibility in tailoring training to the unique needs of every employee in every department in your dealership.
Other Training Providers train on One Topic, at One time, and fail to realize that if the learner does not have the pre-knowledge to use their content that they will inevitably fail! The reason is that they are always training out of sequence, and they are always training new people.
This is where K-Method Academy is different; we offer a complete workforce development solution specifically for the dealership business model. You implement this solution once, and then manage your team’s professional development profile for the life of their employment.
Our training programs are specifically designed to address the unique and complex challenges dealership professionals experience daily. The training consists of courses intended to fill the knowledge gaps that have been preventing them from reaching their full potential, regardless of education, experience or skill level. Learn more
Workshops & Seminars
Our training workshops and seminars are jam packed with real-world content and strategies in order for dealership professionals to be effective in today’s competitive business and selling environment. Participants will leave with their very own action plan based on where they are professionally. Learn more
Coaching & Consulting
Dealership employees are constantly promoted to management positions without the necessary skills to flourish. They are asked to implement programs from the manufacturer without the necessary foreknowledge needed for successful implementation. This is where our coaching and consulting services will prove to be an invaluable resource. Learn more
Your Dealership’s Own Private Training Portal
Unlike most training organizations today, the K-Method Academy delivers its training via a true Learning Management System (LMS). This allows dealerships the ability to implement a real in-house employee development program to achieve truly sustainable results. Managers will finally be able to leverage our technology to assess, assign and deliver training to every member of the team now when the training can do the most good. Learn more
Welcome to the K-Method Academy Hybrid Virtual Training Program
This is not just VIDEO training, but an exciting live interactive training experience with a real trainer streaming through your computer, tablet or smart phone. This powerful training tool is described as Next Level training.
K-Method’s Hybrid Virtual training model offers a 3 Prong Approach to ensure the training sticks!
- First – The learner does their pre-class work by taking their assigned online course and completing the action plan.
- Second – They are enrolled in our virtual classroom to interact with the instructor; get questions answered; and participate in
- Third – They are engaged in Learning Motion™ with their manager when they go back to the sales or department floor. As they implement what they’ve learned under management supervision, they can repeat
the specific courses they may have had difficulty applying before.
|K-Method’s Virtual Model||-VS-||Traditional Traning|
|Training schedule that is flexible; meaning it can be delevered when you need it, on your schedule||vs||Your team has to wait until the program is available or the trainer comes to town.|
|Our trainers and content are accessible via the web for scheduled Q & A’s||vs||In traditional training scenarios there is no real mechanism in place to reconnect with the trainer to get questions answered.|
|All attendees have the ability to get back and review what was covered||vs||Once the class is done, they’re on their own.|
|All attendees have the opportunity to retake the specific training until they get it||vs||Sittin in class all day watching the clock and wondering how to remember all of this information|
|Because of technology, this is by far the most effective and budget friendly training solution available to access a live trainer ever introduced to the dealership bussiness model||vs||The enormous expense of travel, lodging and hosting the trainer before their actual training fee is even applied.|
|Important note about human learning & Retension Statistics: We have short retention span; within 7 days, 50% off what we have learned without repeating is gone!!!|
Why Millennials Love the K-Method’s style of virtual training?
- Millennial’s are the first generation to be born into the technology era. For many of them, tech is a second language, if not their first.
- They eat, breathe, sleep, live and most importantly, learn on their devices.
- They scan, learn and absorb information faster than any other generation, and they want their questions answered now.
- They want a clear pathway to success via information that they test and quantify.
- They want training that is succinct so they can apply it in real time.
- Most importantly, they want to interact with others who speak their language and can give them information in a manner that they can use now.
Our Virtual Classroom is the Perfect Tool to bridge the gap between the Old & New!
We’ve designed our site to be user-friendly and our training curriculum to be to-the-point and succinct! We’ve eliminated the fluff that usually comes with traditional training by placing the emphasis on content-rich and process-heavy training courses. Our site is simple to navigate and our content easily searchable. Help is always just a click away so you can find the solutions to solve the problems you’re experiencing now.
