The Dillman Approach
To change societal behavior towards driver safety and performance, we need to consider how each element in the driving environment will interact. Doing small things consistently well will lead to sustainable results. With Dillman, training is client focused. Understanding inner motivations encourages the driver to realize more of their potential; thus providing a baseline to make meaningful change and reach an individual goal. We prepare drivers of all ages and backgrounds to properly identify, assess, and address the physical, mental, and emotional variables they will inevitably encounter while operating a motor vehicle -- at the very basic or most elite level.
