Home News Mohawk University rolls out new programs for 2010

DALTON—Throughout 2010, Mohawk University is rolling out new programs to help dealers manage tough economic times and find new avenues for building business.

Tim Gray, director of Mohawk University, said one key value of being part of Training magazine’s Top 125 training organizations (FCNews, Feb. 22/March 1) is “looking at how other organizations address training— and seeing how those ideas could benefit Mohawk’s customers.

“We’ve discovered that by looking outside our industry,” he explained, “we’re finding ideas that help us take professionalism to new levels in flooring. It’s helping us bring in new concepts faster and get them into our dealers’ hands.”

Gray said in 2010, Mohawk has partnered with top training resources to introduce brand new courses to Mohawk University. The new classes are based on retailer input and what Mohawk has learned from looking at successes in other businesses.

New courses include “Techniques of Professional Selling,” a comprehensive sales training course from Don Hutson of U.S. Learning, offered in 24 modules that can be viewed in the retailer’s store, and “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” a course offered in partnership with the internationally recognized training organization Franklin Covey.

“These are designed to make information more accessible to dealers,” Gray noted, “because everyone in the store can be part of the professional selling course without having to travel. And with “Seven Habits,” we’re giving Mohawk dealers a course that can make a dramatic difference in both their businesses and person- al lives.”
