The Relationship between Authentic Leadership and Emotional Intelligence
Northern Kentucky University
"Authentic leaders lead with purpose, meaning, and values, leveraging their natural abilities with an awareness of their shortcomings. Research has shown that people are more likely to follow an authentic leader because they trust them and know exactly where the leader stands on issues. With the evident value of this leadership approach, it is worthwhile to examine the characteristics that promote authentic leadership practices. One such characteristic is emotional intelligence. Using a systemic literature review, this paper explores existing research on emotional intelligence and authentic leadership to explore and identify connections, if any, exist between the two."
