Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The concepts of leadership and EI are discussed. The paper describes possible connections between EI and gender and between EI and leadership. Possible effects of EI on leadership in women-business owners and women-senior managers are described. Limitations and recommendations for future research are provided. Keywords: emotional intelligence (EI), leadership, transformational, women, female, business, managers. Relationship between Emotional Intelligence and Leadership Style in Female-Owned Small Businesses and Women-Senior Managers That leadership is one of the most widely researched topics in contemporary organization studies cannot be denied. Much has been written and said about the various factors affecting leadership, as well as the way leadership styles develop and impact organizational performance. A wide array of leadership models and approaches were proposed, with the goal of enhancing the quality and profitability of performance within organizations. The body of research into leadership and effectiveness in organizations constantly increases. Less researched is the relationship between leadership, emotional intelligence (EI), and gender. Today’s workplace differs radically from the way organizations operated several decades ago: women-leaders are becoming an essential ingredient of organizations’ everyday routines.
