Leader Emotional Intelligence and Staff Work MotivationAuthor : Radhika Visalam Krishnamoorthy and Ram Mehar
Volume 8 No.1 January-March 2019 pp 51-60
Intellectually asserted, every educational institution by existence stands for the transaction of intelligence. This unchallengeable poses a need-based context for probing into the most influential yet often neglected dimension of intelligence, the emotional intelligence as an integral process of every progress plan. Schools, in their existence, are human-intensive spaces with their recipients primarily in students and parents, academic transacts in teachers, influencers in regulatory officials and most importantly the visionaries in their management. The uniqueness of such a space is in understanding that every individual comes in with their typical personalities, traits, intelligence indices as well as work-motivation patterns. The principals as leaders pivot all these commissioning dynamics around them in every context of their institution.
