Nowadays, Emotional Intelligence (EI) is given due attention at our workplace in almost each organization. As one concept in the theory of organizational behavior, EI is proven by researchers associated with individual's career development in a way that it can influence employees' job satisfaction, work performance, conflict management and stress mitigation skills, and so on. Emotional intelligence, more often that not, can be enhanced if with proper methods as one grows maturely. As much as companies realize the significance of managing and boosting employees' emotional intelligence, there are still some prior research findings that need to be critiqued to make sure that both organizations and employees can benefit from well-developed emotional intelligence.
Therefore, the purpose of the essay is to critically discuss the relationship between EI and employee's performance and tentatively assess the existing research limitations from the standpoint of organizational behavior management. First, I will define some key concepts related to emotional intelligence. Next, a critical literature review and in-depth analysis will be conducted to challenge the validity and limitations of the research findings based on empirical journal articles. Lastly, I will evaluate and recommend future directions based on my thinking of the literature. All of the secondary data are quoted from websites, academic journals, scholarly books and industry research papers.
