Mentor Driver Workshop

The Objectives

This highly interactive two-day workshop is designed to accomplish 
these objectives:

First, make all the participants aware of the underlying principles and philosophy behind the Mentor Driver Program. This includes identifying and clarifying the roles of the Manager, Mentor Driver, Dispatcher, Training Coordinator, and other Drivers in the Program.

Second, help the participants become familiar and comfortable with the weekly learning format and prepare the drivers for their new role as a training facilitator (Mentor Driver) for their organization

Third, provide at least two, preferable three, opportunities for the new Mentor Drivers to practice facilitating a typical weekly training session. The Mentor's will receive individual coaching and feedback from DynaMax instructors

Fourth, begin understanding the Mentor Driver/Manager Meeting Forum  in order to begin building effective teamwork, open communication, and long-term positive manager/driver business relationships. During the workshop, the participants will begin to discuss ways this Forum can make their company more innovative, cost effective, and profitable.

Workshop Features

  • Each Participant receives their own Mentor Driver Manual to keep including written lesson plans and discussion questions for each of the 60 plus Mentor Driver Videos.

  • Your new Mentor Drivers will learn the intricacies and  "how-tos" of running weekly driver training sessions using videos, lesson plans, and generating meaningful discussions.

  • The first part of the workshop is dedicated in learning about the "Training & Education" aspect of the Program. While the second day is spent focusing on improving "Open Communication and Teamwork."
Workshop Benefits
  • Driver-specific, dynamic, fast-paced, interactive two-day workshop with Drivers and Managers learning side-by-side.

  • During the two-days together, you'll have an opportunity to get to "know" your best drivers and continue the formation of a long-term business relationship that will positively impact your business.
