If you were to fail your Standards Check, it threatens everything you have been building your business towards. It threatens your income and ability to pay the bills; it could threaten the roof over your head and even your relationships because we all know that you have three chances and once you have failed one the stress just ramps up and as humans we don't react well to stress and threats.
Well, below is the story of Elton Taylor who is now one of the Tri-Coaching team delivering training to other ADIs alongside us.
How did that happen? It all started with failure. You know, you're jogging along quite nicely and everything seems okay but it doesn't take that much for the wheels to fall off. In a highly competitive market place - which will only get more competitive - you will need to have that edge over your competition or at the very least have an equal footing.
Can you afford to get left behind? Elton failed his Standards Check and Elton was in trouble and, having a crisis of confidence, he turned to Tri-Coaching Partnership for help and then re-took his Standards Check and scored 51. Imagine the feeling that would give you, the competitive edge, the confidence boost. What it did for Elton was it gave him the confidence to grow his market place and diversify into other areas of training, including Fleet and ADI CPD.
This is the testimonial from Elton Taylor:
'I had been an ADI for some time when I met Graham at a conference. Due to good results and an abundance of clients I had convinced myself that I was a great instructor. Which I was – An instructor. That been said, through all the training I had done up to that point not one of my trainers had used the word coaching!
A very disappointing standards check test shortly after that resulted in a huge crisis in confidence and a confusion about what I thought my job was and what the reality and modern expectations were. I booked some training with Tri-coaching and decided to re-educate myself. After much self-reflection and numerous action plans facilitated by that training session the next Standards Check result was a perfect 51.
All this did, though, was make me realise that I was very far from the instructor I needed and wanted to be.
Thereafter, I decided to try and improve myself and so did the Train the Trainer course with Susan and Graham. It was a great course in terms of my professional development – but the added bonus was that I started realising the potential for my business and the increased income I could generate by being able to assist others in the industry. Now very motivate,d I decided to undertake the BTEC Level 4 Professional Award in Coaching for Driver Development.
What an awesome course delivered by the most gifted trainers I’ve ever been taught by. I can honestly say that I have never learned more on a single course. And I have done and delivered numerous in my previous career in the food industry. My understanding of coaching is now so entrenched that I don’t really know how to train drivers of any level without the coaching skills I have developed.
I have recently completed my BTEC 4 course, and the beauty of it is that by the time you are done, the development that started at the beginning of the course has really started to show results, and once that happens it motivates one to do more. By the end of the course I was changed as a trainer forever.
Where am I now? My business is going really well, and I am starting to focus more and more on delivering CPD training for other ADIs and PDIs. Not only has my earning potential increased dramatically, but I am having the most rewarding time at any point in my adult working career. My association with Tri-coaching is invaluable to me. They are the best placed company in the UK to help make you the best product you can possibly be, and their experience of the business side of the industry then helps you to sell that great product.
You could have a job, or you could have a career with infinite personal and financial rewards. The only thing you need to achieve this is to use the services that are so readily available with this amazing company – Tri-Coaching Partnership.'
