Emotional intelligence consists of five factors: Knowing one’s emotions, managing emotions, motivating oneself, recognizing emotions in others, and handling relationships Goleman (1995).The success of any organization is highly dependent on how it attracts, recruits, motivates and retains its workforce. Today’s organizations need to be more flexible so that they are equipped to develop their workforce and enjoy their commitment.
