Introduction to Daniel Emmanuel
Daniel's first love is working with people to assist them to enjoy their lives. He began doing this in the early 1980's when he developed and started presenting a unique stress management workshop to many different organizations and churches. His program showed people how to work with the stress in their lives though understanding how the mind processes stress, then how to change their attitude about that stress, as well as using relaxation techniques to help control tension and improve rest and sleep.
During the same time he began his organizational development work in 1980, when he helped found Resource Associates with his friend and business associate, Robert Pennington, PhD. His corporate career expanded in 1982 when he joined Pacific Stereo, a major electronics retailer, as their Texas regional training manager working out of the regional office in Dallas, Texas.
Daniel started in 1986 with the automotive industry when he was recruited by J. D. Power and Associates to be a part of a national team to develop workshops to assist auto dealerships based on their customer satisfaction and automobile quality research. Since then, he has been contracted to provide services for Chrysler, Toyota, Ford, Mazda and Nissan dealership service and parts departments.
Daniel provides programs and support to improve customer satisfaction processes and issues, understanding financial statements and how to use the information to increase productivity, sales and profits, improving repair and quality assurance, marketing techniques, advanced coaching techniques for managers, stress management, competitive retail hours, setting up quick lube and quick service operations, and improving accessory sales.
Since 1996, he has presented information on the Internet for consumers and companies concerning management and organizational development, automotive service and sales assistance, stress management and customer satisfaction. He is currently working with several companies to develop and deliver educational presentations via the Internet.
Daniel has been described as a dynamic and engaging public speaker and seminar leader. His goal as a workshop facilitator and consultant is to offer practical, down-to-earth solutions to the challenges facing management by providing a supportive work environment for the employees so they will excel in sales and service when working with their customers.
His work is presented through in-dealership support services, distance learning via satellite and Internet programs, as well as live workshops and lectures.
He currently lives with his wife, Cindy, in Shenandoah, Texas, 35 miles north of Houston, Texas.
