A Framework for Developing the Emotional Intelligence Skills of Entrepreneurial Leaders

This presentation proposes a framework which can be used by teachers and trainers to develop the emotional intelligence skills of entrepreneurial leaders, managers, employees as well as business students. It examines the origins of individual and group-level emotional intelligence and then assesses the relationships between group emotional intelligence, leader emotional intelligence and team effectiveness. The framework combines elements of Frese’s (2009) model of successful entrepreneurship with Druskat and Wolff’s (2001) model for developing the emotional intelligence of groups. The presentation concludes with two mini-cases and suggests ways in which the mini-cases can be leveraged as a teaching tool using the framework in order to focus attention on desired behaviors and elicit critical discussion.
