Power of Positive Leadership

MARCH 20-24, 2022


Dear Dealers,

I am very excited to announce that CDANA is bringing the Power of Positive Leadership Training Certification program developed by Jon Gordon and presented by Julie Nee to the dealer network one day prior to the CDANA Convention in Austin, Texas! I was fortunate enough to take this training last summer and since, several of our dealers have also participated and we feel that this program is not only a great way increase your own personal growth as a leader, but will also improve your teams in your dealerships! This training is typically $600 plus travel per person and CDANA is underwriting a portion of these fees so that dealers and staff can take this course for $279 per person and be combined with your convention participation! We think this is is a great value add opportunity for you and your staff! As Jon Gordon says, “ Positive Leaders Create and Share a Positive Vision.” Spaces for this program are limited and will be taken on a first come, first reserve basis! We hope you will get registered today!

Stay positive,
Jennifer Gibson Hebert
Executive Director
