Do you love your car?

Dealing with difficult or challenging behaviour wears you out and slows you down. If you are a driver you’ll know that in order to move unhindered your car works best with the handbrake off.

Problems with binding brakes can be spotted and corrected when the car undergoes routine maintenance. Many work groups and teams are overdue a service where problems can be identified and given the care and attention they deserve. Make no mistake, difficult or challenging behaviour can do real damage if it’s allow to continue.
