Abstract

In this presentation we will discuss the results of a study examining the efficacy of training emotional intelligence skills and abilities in groups. While performance differences have been found between groups with members that average high in emotional intelligence and groups with members with average low in emotional intelligence (Jordan & Troth, 2004), other longitudinal research suggests that these performance differences were minimized the longer the groups worked together (Jordan, Ashkanasy, Hartel, & Hooper, 2002). Thus, we present a field study that examines this question at a greater level of depth.
