Is emotionell intelligence here to stay? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Emotionell intelligens har på senare årtionde blivit ett alltmer omtalat begrepp och beskrivs ofta med andra begrepp som: motiverande, empatisk, social förmåga, värme och optimism. Föreliggande studie fokuserar på emotionell intelligens hos chefer, samt att undersöka vilka variabler som samvarierar med Ronthys emotionell intelligens. Studien omfattade 95 chefer inom Göteborg och Mölndal. För att besvara studiens frågeställningar användes t-test, ANOVA och multipel regression. Beroende variabel var Ronthys emotionell intelligens och oberoende variabler var emotionell intelligens mätt med hjälp av ett väl beprövat instrument (BEIS-10) och HrQM empati. Resultaten visade att det fanns könsskillnad och det fanns en statistisk signifikant skillnad gällande HrQM empati, samt variabeln BEIS-10 (1) bedömning av egna känslor. ANOVA visade inga signifikanta skillnader i Ronthys emotionell intelligens beroende på befattning. Utifrån regressionsanalysen förklarade HrQM empati, BEIS-10 (4) reglering av andras känslor och BEIS-10 (5) känsloyttringar en del av variansen i Ronthys emotionell intelligens. HrQM empati förklarade mer av variansen än de övriga variablerna, trots att skillnaderna var små. Slutsatsen visade, gällande det studerande stickprovet, att det inte fanns någon signifikant skillnad mellan kvinnor och män i Ronthys emotionell intelligens. Kvinnor visade, enligt självskattningar, mer HrQM empati i sitt ledarskap än män, vilket är intressant då empati anses vara en del av begreppet emotionell intelligens

Abstract [en]

Emotional intelligence is a concept that in recent decades has been more and more talked about. The concept is often described by other concepts such as motivation, empathy, social skills, warmth and optimism. The present study focuses on the emotional intelligence of managers, and variables that correlate with Ronthys emotional intelligence. The study included 95 managers in Gothenburg and Mölndal. In order to answer the questions of the study, t-test, ANOVA and multiple regressions were used. The dependent variable was Ronthy’s emotional intelligence and independent variables were emotional intelligence as measured by well-tested instruments (BEIS-10 and HrQM empathy). The results showed that there was a sex difference and there was a statistically significant difference regarding HrQM empathy, and variable BEIS-10 (1) assessment of their own feelings. ANOVA revealed no significant differences in Ronthys emotional intelligence in relation to work position. Based on the regression analysis, HrQM empathy, BEIS-10 (4) regulation of the feelings of others and BEIS-10 (5) emotion explained part of the variance in Ronthy’s emotional intelligence. HrQM empathy explained more of the variance than the other variables, although the differences were small. The conclusion showed, according to the current sample, that there was no significant difference between women and men in Ronthy’s emotional intelligence. Women showed, according to self-ratings, more HrQM empathy in their leadership than men, which is interesting because empathy is said to be a part of emotional intelligence
