Recent research has highlighted the importance of emotional awareness and emotional intelligence in organizations, and these topics are attracting increasing attention. In this article, the authors present the results of a preliminary classroom study in which emotion concepts were incorporated into an undergraduate leadership course. In the study, students completed self-report and ability tests of emotional intelligence. The test results were compared with students' interest in emotions and their performance in the course assessment. Results showed that interest in and knowledge of emotional intelligence predicted team performance, whereas individual performance was related to emotional intelligence.

In recent years there has been an increased interest in the role of emotional intelligence in both the academic success of students and their emotional adjustment in school. However, promotion of emotional intelligence in schools has proven a controversial pursuit, challenging as it does traditional "rationalist" views of education. Furthermore, research findings in this area have been inconsistent at best. In this article we discuss the following key questions relating to this important debate. What do we mean by emotional "intelligence"? What impact would improved emotional intelligence have on learners' emotional health and well-being, academic achievement, and other adaptive outcomes? Can emotional intelligence be taught? It is felt that these are the key issues for consideration in developing policy, practice, and further research in this area.

Emotionally Intelligent Interventions for Students with Reading Disabilities.
Pellitteri, John Dealy, Michael Fasano, Charles Kugler, John
Reading & Writing Quarterly; Apr-Jun2006, Vol. 22 Issue 2, p155-171,
The construct of emotional intelligence provides a framework for understanding emotional processes in students with reading disabilities. The components of emotional intelligence include the perception of emotions, emotional facilitation of thinking, emotional knowledge, and emotional regulation. This article examines underlying affective processes as they relate to cognition, motivation, and social functioning. Ecological and individual interventions for influencing learning and social adjustment are described. Consideration is given to the emotional factors in the school environment, the interpersonal interactions of peer groups, opportunities for facilitating emotional learning, and dynamic affective–aesthetic responses of the individual during the reading process.

The study's purpose was to examine emotional intelligence skills and potential problem areas of elementary educators. The study provided elementary educators with a self-assessment of emotional intelligence skills to utilize in the workplace and beyond. An improved understanding of personal skills and weaknesses may lessen educator's risk of psychological burnout. In addition, increased awareness of children's emotional intelligence skills offers educators an alternative means of student assessment. The study's research population consisted of a cluster sample of elementary educators. Each educator varied in regard to length of time in profession and level of education. Many variables were increasing the likelihood of psychological burnout for these educators. The significant findings of this study reveal that elementary educators do not perceive any personal, "enhanced" emotional intelligence skills. The comparison between Master's level and bachelor's level educator's perceptions of personal emotional intelligence skills were similar. Master's level teacher viewed themselves as having higher self-esteem, stress management, and anger management skills, while Bachelor's level teachers perceived themselves as having more enhanced assertion skills.
