MAKING YOUR MILES COUNT Robert D. Scheper

Building A Leader I was talking to the President of a large operation about six months ago. We talked about his grandson who was just entering the family business. He was concerned about the young man’s timidity and lack of “leadership” with those around him. The President was concerned that his grandson was too “nice” and couldn’t be trusted to fire someone or hire the “right” person as opposed to the “nicest”. He felt he seemed “soft”. He’s everyone’s best friend he said. The President was worried about the long-term effect of his grandson’s popularity at the expense of leadership.

My response was dished from two plates. The first was questioning his definition of leadership. Does a leader need to be the biggest a- - hole at the company? Is that the path to great leadership? Before he could answer that question, I took from another plate. Does his grandson follow orders from his current boss? Does his grandson excel in his current job title? The president said “Yes, he’s good at following orders and doing his current job!”

This young man is 21 years old, good enough at his job, he takes orders and is well liked, yet his grandfather wanted him to be a kick a- - leader. I told the President to chill out (not my exact words). I told him that, considering his grandson’s generation, he is light years ahead of his peers. What students learn in high school hardly prepares them for the work force. Too many times what’s expected is… procrastinate until the exam, then cram real hard, write the test and promptly drain what you learned from your mind by entertainment (games, party and play). These habits are further emphasized

while attending university or college. Students academically persevere to simply pass a test or get a diploma, thinking that their sacrifice is only short term; only till their exams are over. In current classical education settings, students are not being prepared to be subservient. They are not taught that in the real-world people serve other people… and those who serve best are the most valuable. The most valuable people eventually (but not always) rise to the top of the company.

I’ve interviewed many (maybe too many) college grads who have shown little to no initiative in their career choice beyond their diploma/ degree. I’ve asked if they know anything about this industry beyond what they learned in college… “nope” is the common answer. They know next to nothing about hard work or their need to understand the truth about their industry. They hardly even believe in truth. Too many believe that all views and opinions are to be tolerated. They are taught that their opinion is just as valid as their bosses or the customers. That is simply not true! A great leader must first be a great follower. They must first be humble, so they can learn their job and customers well. Only once they understand the requirement for everyone to master serving one another can they rise in leadership. They should not rise in authority for their own benefit but for the benefit and health of the company. It’s only when employees demonstrate their commitment and focus to the betterment of the company (through serving customers) that their value can be (or should be) appreciated and rewarded. Demonstrating character and commitment to the company takes time; years or hopefully even decades. The longer, the better. It must be

About the Author: Robert D. Scheper is a leading Accountant and Consultant to the Lease/Owner operator industry in Canada. His first book in the Making Your Miles Count series “taxes, taxes, taxes” was released in 2007. His firm exclusively serves Lease/Owner Operators across Canada. His second book “Choosing a Trucking company” is the most in-depth analysis of the operator industry available today. He has a Master degree (MBA) in financial management and has been serving the industry since he and his wife came off the road in 1993. His dedication, commitment and strong opinions can be read and heard in many articles and seminars.

tested daily, over as many various conflicts and circumstances as possible. True character and leadership can’t be crammed into a one-hour exam. The President’s grandson was demonstrating character despite his “classical” education. As long as he keeps serving the customer he is learning the basics of serving the company well. Eventually he will see that there may be those who refuse to serve the customer, causing harm to the company or their employees. His concern for the customer will eventually teach him that hard choices need to be made. Slackers, for the good of the company and its customers must be let go.

I told my friend that he should have more patience with the development of his grandson but before that, he should be proud of him. He made it through school without drinking the entitlement cool-aide.

SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE Ray J. Haight

Are You Looking for a Professional Driver? I have been speaking and consulting over the past number of years on the subject of retention. What I have learned and has been my experience is that high turnover in any trucking company can be brought under control. That’s a fact. I have been there, done that, bought the t-shirt. Any insightful management team that can muster up a committed effort can show an impressive reduction of lost drivers in a matter of three to twelve months and, with ongoing programs it can be maintained indefinitely. When speaking to my trucking executive audiences, I ask them how many would prefer to hire professional Drivers? (To put this question in context, I first classify drivers into three categories: First, the lost and forlorn. They are just driving a truck until they find their real calling and by the way, they rarely do. Secondly, there is the truck stop cowboy. These folks are in love with the image of being a truck driver but not interested in being proficient at what they’re doing. The third grouping of drivers are the professionals; always looking clean and sharp, concerned with doing things properly and being accountable and responsible for all their actions). After I explain this and ask what type of Driver and Owner Operator they would like to hire, what I see is a room full of hands that have shot up into the air for, of course, the professional Driver and Owner Operator.

24 • OVER THE ROAD

So, here’s the next question that I ask the group. So you all want professionals in your company? Okay, that makes sense. So what do you do to foster that desire and this is when I get the glazed over look. Most companies currently have professionals in their infrastructure that they support such as a CPA that assists in making sure the company is current and compliant with all accounting rules. The head of Human Resources needs to be kept abreast of all the new labor rules that the company supports and how about the Safety Manager? The company likely sends this individual to regular safety council meetings and has paid for employees to obtain their CDS designation, to name just a few positions. So I ask, you also want professional Drivers and Owner Operators at your company but what do you do within your fleet to support this claim? How do you make information available so that your people have a source of knowledge that will allow them to excel at their trade? Examples would be: how to be a successful Owner Operator, new proposed rulemakings, advanced defensive driving, new equipment innovation, conversational sales to name just a few. If your answer is nothing then you should stop claiming to want professionals at your company because you do not have an infrastructure that supports that claim. If you want professionals, treat them like professionals or as Don Cherry would say “It’s not nuclear surgery”. AUGUST 2018


And it is so easy to do. There are so many great resources for educating oneself (and your Drivers) these days on how to be successful. This is not to say that there wasn’t some useful information back when I drove but back then, it was in book form and after I put in my long days work, it was time to hit the rack - and reading a couple chapters and absorbing anything of value from a general business self-help book was not in the cards. And when I got home it was down time, time to get recharged and then head back out.

what I see coming from Robert Scheper at THR Consulting. Robert has been a one man crusader for justice on behalf of Canadian Owner Operators against CRA and his articles and much more can be found at www.thrconsulting.ca/index.html and of course, in Over the Road Magazine http:// www.overtheroad.ca/writers/robertscheper/. There is a lot of good information to be found at Truck News Learning Center including a 10 part series I did some years ago called: Becoming a Successful Owner Operator https://www.trucknews. com/?s=Ray+Haight. In addition of course, there are many good industry publications whose editorials have valuable information that is there for the reading. On any variety of business topics and for life in general, I happen to love Udemy https://www.udemy. com. The volume of quality educational content is staggering and very economical.

There is a great wealth of information available these days, specifically on being a successful Driver or Owner Operator and it is available in the most convenient forms such as streaming from the internet, watching YouTube, listening to satellite radio and doing online courses. And much of it can be listened to while the Driver watches the miles go by. For those Drivers out there thinking of purchasing a truck and possibly becoming an Owner Operator or even starting a small trucking company, here are some of the materials that I would suggest that you obtain and listen to as a way of formulating a plan to move forward.

The sources of information can go on and on and is there for the listening, much of it is free and the rest is very economical. I remember being at a seminar where the speaker was the Miami Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson. During the Q&A period, he was asked this question: Coach Johnson, how do you mold the crop of young men you get each year into professional football players? Coach Johnson’s short answer was, “talk to people that look up to you the way you want them to behave and they will become that. Talk to them the way they are and they will stay that way. If you want professionals, it’s simple. Treat them that way.”

You could start by listening to: Trucking Business and Beyond by Kevin Rutherford on Sirius XM Radio Channel, The Road Dog. I would also check out the training Kevin offers at http://letstruck.com. Kevin is an old friend of mine and a sea of knowledge on how to become a master Owner Operator. I took Kevin’s Certified Master Contractor course some years ago and it was excellent and well worth the money. I would also check out ATBS’s Knowledge Hub program; it is an excellent resource of valuable information https://www.atbs.com/knowledge-hub. I like
