Day 4 in the Positivity House....

What a day!

I woke up positive. Great lad to train 1st thing and then a lesson for a pregnant Mum who is going to 'try manual' after I convinced her actually 'she could'!

So, the plan - Trip down the A21 then roundabouts to Orpington and back....

The reality - 200m onto the A21 and it stops solid. 2 vehicle collision and a serious fuel spillage. The 2hr lesson ended up taking 4 1/2 hours and lesson 2 got postponed! :(

Even I was struggling to find the positivity there!
But once I had regrouped I checked Facebook and my e-mails. I found positivity oozing from ADIs nationwide.

ADI meals out, Day trips, New lesson plans and Competition winners. Even the odd little comments on Facebook are lifting the general mood!

So, I may have made a loss today, but I am smiling, grateful to share this job with you all, and looking forward to the goodies the next 3 days have to share!!!

I is Christmas yet?

Recommendation: Start planning your strategy for Christmas vouchers. If you are like me it always runs away from you, so get it ready early!!!

Hump-day Wednesday? Not this week!

It's hump-day Wednesday, & we are rapidly approaching the half way marker.

Day 3 of Positivity and I'm loving all the ADIs I meet wishing me a "Happy Positivity week"! Thanks peeps

Day 3s Quiz is up on the sites, So get quizzing!

Use alternate link if quiz doesn't run (iPhones)

Keep it positive everyone! ADI satisfaction levels are rising, negativity is dropping!

It's even spread to Slimming World! (Pic below from Karen Powell)

Welcome to Driving Instructor Positivity Week 2014

W5th - 11th May is Driving Instructor Positivity Week 2014 #DIPW

We are inviting all ADIs and related services to do something to harness positivity inside the industry.

For a while the driver training profession has been suffering from a sense of apathy, a focus on the negative. DIPW is a chance to fight back collectively and improve the image of our profession.

There are already ADIs across the country putting plans in place. Some small steps, like an increased focus on productivity. Some larger ones, like redesigning parts of their business.

Whatever you decide to do, just make it a positive effort and give it your best shot!

Please get in touch and share any ideas or plans, we'd love to let others know what you are up to!
