CarriersEdge adds emotional intelligence course to training program

“Emotional Intelligence” is available now as part of the CarriersEdge subscription service.

CarriersEdge has introduced a series of courses to help managers and supervisors in the trucking industry evaluate and improve their leadership and teamwork skills. The first in the series, Emotional Intelligence, is focused on ways that managers and supervisors can be perceptive to emotional states (theirs and others’), and how they can use that knowledge to be more effective leaders, the press release notes.

According to Harvard Business School, emotionally mature workplaces function better, and leaders with better-developed skills like empathy perform 40% higher in decision-making, coaching and engaging others. Additionally, Forbes suggests that “increasing your emotional intelligence is probably one of the best investments you can make for yourself and for your organization.” With this in mind, CarriersEdge says that the “Emotional Intelligence” course is aimed at building out this skill set and supporting the development of strong, emotionally perceptive leadership teams.

“Over the years in our Best Fleets program, we’ve seen how companies invest in ways to boost the leadership skills of their management teams,” said Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge. “There are a lot of managers and supervisors out there who know their business very well, but managing people might be a very new experience for them. We’re releasing this course as the first in a series to help managers and supervisors do the less technical parts of their jobs better.”
