Worksheet #1 Giorgi, G. (2013). Organizational emotional intelligence: Development of a model. International Journal of Organizational Analysis, 21 (1), 4-18. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.1108/19348831311322506 What general topic is the researcher addressing? Generally, the researcher is studying the relations between Emotional Intelligence (EI) and how competencies are related. In order to determine the relationship between certain factors, researchers focused their attention on two research questions: how are emotional competencies related and are organizations emotionally intelligent? (Giorgi, 2013). What have other researchers already discovered about this topic? Concerning the discoveries of previous research, researchers interpreted organizational intelligence and defined it as “the extent to which an organization generates EI behaviors among employees” (Giorgi, 2013). The researcher established that leading researchers in EI established models with specific relations among competencies; e.g., self-control and social awareness are the foundation for developing social skills and functions of management skills. However, these prior studies did not interpret the relationship between EI abilities and how competencies are related. The researcher posits that there is a relationship between organizational intelligence and employee What is new about this study compared with other research? Past researchers suggest that organizational EI might exist and can be investigated as emotional entities (Fineman, 2008). Generally speaking, an organization that is emotionally intelligent could enable individuals to successfully collaborate and foster teamwork in the work environment. What are the researcher’s hypotheses? Giorgi believes that EI literature represents only a portion of a “complex, multilevel phenomenon” (2013) and that individual differences could also be representative of organizational differences. What are the characteristices of the participants or subjects? A total of 1506 employees across 20 organizations a sample of Italian workers from different regions belonging to a variety of occupations representing organizations from varying company sizes; e.g., ten employees to 300 employees. What apparatus and materials were used in the study? The researcher used a “new instrument (Organizational Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire, ORG-EIQ) to measure emotional and organizational intelligence” (Giorgi, 2013).

What did the participants actually do? More than 1700 individuals participated and responded to the newly developed questionnaire, ORG-EIQ that consisted of 99 questions to access 12 EI competencies using self-report questions. To assess EI, the ORG-EIQ was administered. The ORG-EIQ was recently developed by Gabriele Giorgi and Vincenzo Majer and consists of 99 self-report questions that assessed 12 EI competencies and other factors of EI; specifically, mood and life balance. To test the proposed organizational EI structure, Giorgi and Majer (2009) performed an explorative factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). They authors report that there was support for the organizational EI. Life balance and mood factors

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
