Tips for Fleet Managers to Stay Ahead
While the beginning of a new job for Fleet Managers can be exciting, the honeymoon period can come to a very abrupt end. The goal is to make sure everything is running smoothly, and that can quickly get boring and repetitive. While the daily scope might entail registration problems, out of service reports, and accidents; the overall job can be a lot more interesting, from a few ideas.
If you want to stay at the top of your game, try to keep an open mind about learning new things in your industry. While fleet managers usually are responsible for performing 4 to 5 skills, most managers really only know how to do 2 really well. Expand your horizons. If your background is in accounting, try to learn how the trucks actually work and what decisions need to be made for comfort, or longevity. If your background is in manufacturing, maybe go back to school and get a degree in accounting or take some classes. Everyone has something that can be worked on, and its important to recognize that.
