Emotional Intelligence as a Predictor of Leadership of Kuwaiti High and Low Achieving 11th Graders
Alnabhan, Mousa
Gifted and Talented International, v25 n2 p107-110 Dec 2010
The current study examined the association between emotional intelligence (EI) and the Leadership components (L) of high school students in the state of Kuwait. The possibility of predicting each leadership component via emotional intelligence components was investigated for high and low achievers. A sample of 11th grade students from Kuwaiti secondary schools was randomly selected and divided into high and low achieving groups based on their grade point averages. The Bar-On and Barker EI scale and the Arabic version of the Stogdill leadership measure were used. The multiple linear regression results revealed that some EI components can predict leadership for high achievers, where it was not possible to do so with the low achievers. (Contains 1 table.)
