Title: The relation between emotional intelligence and psychological capital of employees
Author: Mellão, Nathalia; Mónico, Lisete dos Santos Mendes
Abstract: Este documento examina la relación entre la Inteligencia Emocional (EI), entendida como la competencia de un individuo en el comportamiento adaptativo inteligente, y la Capital Psicológica (PC), considerada como un conjunto de características positivas de la personalidad utilizadas en el ámbito profesional de los empleados. Se realizó una encuesta cuantitativa con una muestra de 301 individuos de ambos sexos y diferentes grupos de edad que actualmente están empleados en Portugal. Utilizamos las medidas Escala de Inteligencia Emocional (Rego, Sousa Cunha, Correia, y Saur-Amaral, 2007) y el Cuestionario PsyCap (Luthans, Avolio, Avey, y Norman, 2007). Los resultados sugieren que la IE tiene una relación significativa y una alta correlación (r = .599) con la PC de los trabajadores, siendo la capacidad de automotivarse utilizando los propios sentimientos (autoestímulo) y controlar sus sentimientos en situaciones emocionales (emocional autocontrol) factores que contribuyen mucho a promover el Capital Psicológico de los empleados.This paper examines the relationship between the Emotional Intelligence (EI), understood as an individual’s competence in intelligent adaptive behavior, and the Psychological Capital (PC), seen as a set of positive personality features used in the professional scope, of employees. A quantitative survey was made with a sample of 301 individuals of both genders and different age groups that are currently employed in Portugal. We used the measures Emotional Intelligence Scale (Rego, Sousa Cunha, Correia, & Saur-Amaral, 2007) and the PsyCap Questionnaire (Luthans, Avolio, Avey, & Norman, 2007). The results suggest that the EI has a significant relationship and a high correlation (r = .599) with the PC of the workers, being the capacity of self motivate using the own feelings (selfencouragement) and to control their feelings in emotional situations (emotional self-control) factors that contribute very much to promote the Psychological Capital of the employees.
