A Question of Culture

International Comparative Study—More than 2000 participants surveyed

Emotionally intelligent people bring together different abilities. They can correctly identify, understand, and influence not only their own emotions, but those of others, as well. They can purposively use emotions to help achieve a specific result. Therefore, this topic is of importance for companies interested in selecting managers. “We know that emotional intelligence in managers has a positive impact on their ability to motivate colleagues,” said Marjaana Gunkel, Professor for Organization and Management at Leuphana University Lüneburg.
