Emotional intelligence: construct and concurrent validity

Emotional intelligence: construct and concurrent validity
Emotional intelligence: construct and concurrent validity
The study reported in this paper is one part of a much larger investigation into the quality of working life and Stress of managers in a large multi–national retail organisation conducted by Slaski, a co-author. In addition to a number of measures of stress and job performance, participants completed two measures of EI, the Dulewicz & Higgs EIQ and the Bar-on EQ-i. The study provided an opportunity to explore the degree to which the existing EIQ validity results might be replicated on a higher level of management; to investigate the hypothesis that EIQ is related to morale and stress at work; to explore changes in EIQ scores after an Emotional Intelligence training course; and to determine to what extent two different Emotional Intelligence instruments measure the same construct and elements.
Correlations between the two instruments showed both content and construct validity while correlations between the EIQ and measures of morale and stress at work demonstrated construct validity. Significant relationships were found between EIQ and current job performance, thus providing further evidence of the concurrent validity of the EIQ. Finally, evidence is presented showing improvements of Emotional Intelligence scores after training using both EI instruments, thus demonstrating that EI is capable of development.

Abstract

The study reported in this paper is one part of a much larger investigation into the quality of working life and Stress of managers in a large multi–national retail organisation conducted by Slaski, a co-author. In addition to a number of measures of stress and job performance, participants completed two measures of EI, the Dulewicz & Higgs EIQ and the Bar-on EQ-i. The study provided an opportunity to explore the degree to which the existing EIQ validity results might be replicated on a higher level of management; to investigate the hypothesis that EIQ is related to morale and stress at work; to explore changes in EIQ scores after an Emotional Intelligence training course; and to determine to what extent two different Emotional Intelligence instruments measure the same construct and elements.
Correlations between the two instruments showed both content and construct validity while correlations between the EIQ and measures of morale and stress at work demonstrated construct validity. Significant relationships were found between EIQ and current job performance, thus providing further evidence of the concurrent validity of the EIQ. Finally, evidence is presented showing improvements of Emotional Intelligence scores after training using both EI instruments, thus demonstrating that EI is capable of development.
