women in their 20's to 30's. Women who are close in age grew up in the same generation and generally have similar values. If the age of the  women ranged from the early 20's to mid 60's, I think you are much more likely to have personality differences and your views on emotional  intelligence will be much different.  It also does not state if the women were friends prior to working at the company, were they all hired from a similar area, were they given work  ethic questions in the application process etc... Did the women voluntarily show up a half hour early for cookies or were they voluntold?  All  these factors play into the success of a company. I believe employment placement agencies exist so companies looking to fill a position can  weed out the personalities they dont see fit to their mission. This also plays into the success of the company and can dis-prove emotional  intelligence is a learned behavior.  I enjoyed reading your post.

I agree that it takes the right kind of person to be an emotionally intelligent supervisor.  I have also worked for individuals that could have cared  less about their employees.  I have heard the statement " I am not here to make friends, I am here to do my job,"  quite a few times.  In my  experience, these are the worst people to work for, they don't realize that by having this attitude, they are lowering the moral of their employees  and decreasing their productivity.   I have also had a few really good supervisors.  These people were very emotionally intelligent, they seemed to really care about what was  going on in my life.  I respected these people more, and I wanted to do a good job for them.  I was also more comfortable around these  supervisors and found that I communicated better with them.  Having an emotionally intelligent manager can make all the difference in an  employee's performance As a traditional Air Force Reservist, we typically only see our fellow Airman two days of every month. On the first day, things are a bit awkward.  We have all spent the month at our civilian job, with our families, and away from each other. Unless we are good friends, we don't talk much  outside our "weekend." By Sunday, things are a little less awkward. We had 12 hours on Saturday to ask the, "Hi! How are you doing"  questions. But, by Sunday evening, we all part ways and go back to the next months awkwardness.  I do not believe emotional intelligence can be learned after we are about 10 years old. Just like learning to respect one another and say our  please and thank you's, we are taught to emotionally tolerate co-workers and peers. Either we click with our co-workers and become friends or

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
