Over the last 30 years, AfMA has been at the forefront of developing and elevating the Fleet and Automotive professions by providing a range of professional development programs, events, and resources.

In 2021, The Personal Development Program was designed to augment this professional development focus.

The Personal Development Program is a series of interactive webinars that focus on the enhancement of Emotional Intelligence.

Emotional Intelligence is defined by Harvard Business School as the “ability to understand and manage your emotions as well as recognise and influence the emotions of those around you”

It is a critical factor in successful leadership with research showing that emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of performance both personally and professionally.

Daniel Goleman in his book: Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More than IQ states that “emotional intelligence determines our success in relationships, work, and well-being”

Isuzu Ute saw an opportunity to position itself as a supporter of this unique program and has been a sponsor since the program’s inception. They have just announced their continued support into 2025. We thank and recognise Isuzu UTE for their continued focus on the development of individuals within this industry, over 1700 different organisations and 3000 individuals have become better humans as a result of these sessions and their support.

Every year a series of six webinars centred on a theme focusing on the enhancement of Emotional Intelligence are available to everybody free of charge courtesy of Isuzu UTE.

The 2024 theme is: From Managing to Leading. This series aims to support the challenging transition from managing to leading and provide practical tools and strategies to develop as a leader and apply effective leadership traits in both professional and personal scenarios. These six sessions will:
