Purpose: This research paper aims to understand how emotional intelligence can affect managerial effectiveness and the work environment, and provide strategy-driven solutions to promote an emotionally intelligent work environment. Design/Methodology/Approach: This research paper attempts to analyze the impact of emotional intelligence on the managerial effectiveness of executives in an organization, by carrying out an exhaustive review of existing literature. Findings: According to the findings of this study, emotionally intelligent managers are more likely to have a positive influence on their organization’s employees than managers with a lower emotional quotient. It is crucial for an organisation to implement strategies to improve emotional intelligence in the workplace. Research Limitations: The research presented is purely theoretical, and may not always apply to real-life scenarios because the management styles of managers are varied across organizations. The study is qualitative and not backed by quantitative data as emotions are not practically quantifiable but can be observed. Practical Implications: Emotionally intelligent managers should be viewed as key elements in driving an organization forward, in order to maintain a healthy work environment for themselves and their subordinates. Emotional intelligence should be considered one of the key factors that must be evaluated as criteria for selecting candidates for management positions in an organisation. Originality/Value: The present study illustrates the necessity of emotional intelligence in management. It highlights the importance of an emotionally intelligent work environment and also provides strategically driven solutions to inculcate emotional intelligence in the workplace.
