The Mann Group takes GEAR training online with Myagi

Published May 31, 2017

WEAVERVILLE, N.C. (BRAIN) — The Mann Group, a retail sales and management training firm specializing in bike, outdoor, running, ski, flyfishing and photography, is providing its GEAR bike training online. The company has teamed up with Myagi, an online training website.

"Over the past decade, hundreds of bicycle retailers have been taught the GEAR process," said Dan Mann, founder of The Mann Group. "We've traveled to all 50 states and have spent many days training thousands of students. While in-house training is invaluable and we'd love to visit every bike store in the country, it's not necessarily realistic for all retailers, especially given the dynamic manner of our industry. There's turnover with staff, people come and go, and there's always a need to update and refresh this training. We want to make that as easy, affordable and accessible as possible.

"By housing our GEAR training online, we can provide access to our time-tested and state-of-the-art training to retailers around the world," Mann added. "Companies we've worked with in the past can easily train the employees they've hired since we last met, and folks who are new to The Mann Group can effortlessly and economically incorporate our training into all levels of their workforce."

The online training will include videos and quizzes.

"By no means is video training the complete process, but it certainly provides bike retailers with unique, consistent content," Mann said. "And when paired with our manual and poster and book, these retailers are outfitted with a full complement of resources to make sure their staff provides the best sales process possible. These are enough resources to effectively and affordably train their staff."
