3. Problem Solving with Mike Warnell

Mike Warnell drives a fuel tanker truck for Source One Trucking. We talked about the various complexities he faces as a truck driver and he shared several strategies about Problem Solving.

Mike is a personal friend of mine and when I asked him to be on the show, he told me that he was not a “Smart Person” and that there was nothing he could teach my audience. After listening to him, I think you’ll agree with me, he could not have been more wrong.

Here are some of the key takeaways from Mike’s interview:

  • Anticipating and preventing potential problems limits the need to solve problems.
  • The primary key to avoiding mistakes is paying attention to details.
  • Doing your homework beforehand equips you with the knowledge to handle what lies ahead.
  • Professionals are held to a higher standard.
  • Learn from the people who have been there before you.
