Abstract

Emotional intelligence is defined as a form of social intelligence that involves the ability to discriminate, monitor and use one's own and others' emotions to guide one's own thoughts and actions (Albrecht K. 2007). The purpose of the research is to verify the extent to which the level of emotional intelligence influences the leadership style. The objectives of the research are: 1. identifying the profile of leaders; 2. appreciation of the level of emotional intelligence influences the appreciation of the leadership style; 3. the level of leadership responsibilities influences the appreciation of the leadership style; 4. the gender of the respondents influences the appreciation of the leadership style of the bosses. In conclusion, we observed a significant correlation between leadership style and the level of leadership responsibilities, in the sense that as leaders receive new career challenges the leadership style focuses on problem solving and obstacles become a priority.
