Emotional intelligence and leadership : A quantitative study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var att undersöka sambandet mellan emotionell intelligens (EI )och ledarskapsstilar i Sverige. Tidigare studier har funnit ett samband mellan emotionell intelligens och transformativt ledarskap. Studien syftade även till att undersöka ifall tidigare forsknings resultat mellan emotionell intelligens och ledarskapsstilar skiljer sig i förhållande till ett svenskt urval. Ledarna (N=61) besvarade på frågor angående emotionell intelligens (SEIS) samt på frågor angående ledarskapsstil (MLQ5X). Resultatet visade ett signifikant positivt samband mellan emotionell intelligens och alla fyra komponenter i transformativt ledarskap. Inga signifikanta resultat fanns mellan emotionell intelligens och ett transaktionellt ledarskap. Ett signifikant negativt samband fanns mellan emotionell intelligens och ett laissez-fairledarskap. Resultatet visade att föreliggande studie låg i linje med tidigare forskningsresultat.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examining the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and leadership styles in Sweden. Previous studies have found a link between emotional intelligence and transformational leadership. The study also aimed to investigate whether previous research results between emotional intelligence and leadership styles differ in relation to a Swedish sample. The leaders (N=61) answered questions about emotional intelligence (SEIS) and questions regarding leadershipstyle (MLQ5X). The results showed a significant positive correlation between emotional intelligence and all four components of transformational leadership. No significant results were found between emotional intelligence and transactional leadership. A significant negativ ecorrelation was found between emotional intelligence and al aissez-fair leadership. The results showed that the present study was consistent with previous research.
