EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND JOB SATISFACTION. HOW DO THEY WORK TOGETHER?
Proceedings of the INTERNATIONAL MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE, 2017, vol. 11, issue 1, 756-765
Emotional intelligence has required a lot of attention in the past years. Starting with the first mention of emotional intelligence in the doctoral thesis of Wayne Payne in 1985 and moving forward to the well known models developed by the researchers as K.V. Petrides (2001) Mayer and Salovey (2001) and Daniel Goleman (1995), this subject has been well studied and debated. This research is following the model of K. V. Petrides, the Trait model, and is also developing a method of measuring job satisfaction in accordance with emotional intelligence. The instrument presented here starts from combining the current models of job satisfaction with the Trait model of emotional intelligence, using the same scale as Petrides used for his TEIQue. This research method is developed in order to measure the level of emotional intelligence of university professors and the job satisfaction level in accordance with the emotional intelligence that students are proving. The objective of this study is to verify the research metod developed, and its utility. The hipothesis of this research are: a)professors with high levels of emotional intelligence are more satisfied about their jobs;b) students with high levels of emotional intelligence are more satisfied about their professors and the learning environment. The respondents involved in this research are professors working for one of the most prestigious Universities in Romania, Bucharest University of Economic Studies and their students. The results of this study lead the major research on a new level of investigating the connections between emotional intelligence and job satisfaction within the student-professor relationship.
