HGV Drivers

Keeping Calm on the Road the antidote to road rage

In 2015 when a potential client called us to ask if we could develop a workshop for HGV drivers little did we know this was going to lead to us designing and delivering the first JAUPT authorised Drivers Emotional Resilience Workshop.

Since then we have been running Keeping Calm On The Road for logistics industry clients with great reviews and success. 

Keeping Calm On The Road enables drivers to understand the stresses and strains of driving, deal with the challenges of overcrowded roads and cope with the issues that a changeable world presents.

Never more than now has the emotional health of the driver meant so much to the organisation they drive for.

"Julian delivered a Commercial Vehicle Drivers CPC course called "Keeping Calm on the Road" to all our drivers. The feedback from them was excellent and having attended the course myself took away many skills that will help me in work and at home. I would recommend the courses Julian runs to anyone in helping you deal with day to day life and gaining a more positive outlook in general."

While delivering this workshop for one of our clients we experienced the pleasure of random inspection by JAUPT here’s some of their comments –

“The course was tailored to suit the trainees and the type of work they are currently engaged. The trainer knew the subject matter well, working without notes or a PowerPoint presentation to support him. He used various styles of questions to engage his audience, which were directed to the group. He had complete control of the group from the outset and quickly gained their attention and ensured they remained focused. There were lively discussions and positive interaction and the trainer used an appropriate amount of humour. He was seen to follow the delivery method as specified in the approved course summary. He made good use of the flip chart to explain various aspects of stress. The trainer was confident and remained enthusiastic and demonstrated his skills and experience as a trainer by engaging his audience who were at the outset not overly interested in the subject matter. ……… The course was very well designed and very interactive and professionally delivered by the trainer.”

Given the style of JAUPT reports, this is high praise indeed. In their verbal feedback the auditor stated that in all their years of inspecting workshops this was the first time they had seen a workshop that did not use powerpoint at all.

Delegates on these courses are notoriously shy about giving written feedback but one did take the time to sit down and write these words….”I entered this course with some doubt to what it may show me but to be fair my eyes were opened. Thank you.” 

Here is a selection of some more comments that were written down on our feedback forms……..

“Need more training like this help in job and private life as well”

“This brought home a few home truths”

“The trainer was approachable and pleasant the whole time”

“It will make you think of your reactions and the consequences it may have on you and others”

“It is a very useful aid in reducing anger management”

 “It’s more interesting than you’d think”

“Brilliant. Everybody should take this course”

 “It really makes you think about what you can do to improve your life and situation from your outlook”
