Do you believe that employees can learn/be trained to be more emotionally intelligent? I believe employees can be trained to be more emotionally intelligent, the only problem  is that the employee needs to WANT to be trained.  There is different kinds of employees, those who want to learn and continuously look for new opportunitites and there's the kind that have been  doing the same job for many years and are content with what they do. This type of training can be done at the supervisor, Middle Management,  and upper Management levels. It can also be done at the corporate level by making an incentive program company wide that rewards  employees for a job well done or meeting quotas without incident or having the least amount of quality issues in a certain amount of time to  making money saving suggestions that are implimented in the regular workday. The one issue I have seen, is among long term employees that don't like change in the workplace. Don't know how many times I have heard  "this is the way I've been doing it for 10 years, how is that going to make it better?" this is challenge for a manager. This brings me back to the

employee, if he/she is open for change then this employee can be trained. If the employee has his/her ways set and not willing to change then it  would be more difficult, It's not impossible but it would definitly take a little longer. The number one motivation that everyone has, I believe is  money. If people know there is money for them if a good thing happens then people are more inclined to do well. Money incentives could be  anything from a money saving idea for the company, annual bonus, to a good raise at the end of the year. I am a believer in teamwork, if every manager would take the time to train their people in an ongoing bases to work as a team, productivity  would go up dramatically. Companies like Motorola, Toyota, GE  .....  with their internal training in Six Sigma, Kaisan, Kanban all systems for lean  manufacturing there's incentives for everyone. People have to adapt to different systems of doing things or they become obsolete. Morale is  very important for people to learn or be trained, morale has to be good for someone to learn. It is important to have good morale in a company  especially if it starts at the top, from the CEO on down. Emotional intelligence is very difficult characteristic to acquire. Either people have or they do not.  I concur with Mancos’s study “ early childhood development behaviors can signal the kind of supervisory abilities a person later demonstrates at work”. Personalities are categorized according to type whether they are A or B. Within the realm of the business world as management, you have to

    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.
