The success or failure of a team often hinges on the effectiveness of leadership. While most fans, athletic directors, and players define the effectiveness of a coach solely by his or her win-loss record, understanding the effects of emotional intelligence and coaching efficacy on the transformational leadership of coaches can positively influence both individual and team performance. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of emotional intelligence and coaching efficacy on the transformational leadership of NCAA Division I, II, and III coaches. This analysis was a quantitative study utilizing the responses of 148 collegiate coaches from the state of Georgia on the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ), Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Test (SSEIT), and the Coaching Efficacy Scale (CES). Results of the data analysis reveal a statistically significant positive correlation between emotional intelligence and transformational leadership. The results also show a statistically significant positive correlation between coach efficacy and transformational leadership. Finally, the results also show a statistiscally significant positive correlation between coaching efficacy and emotional intelligence. Based on the findings of this study, the understanding and practice of these concepts by coaches may actually enhance their team's motivation, performance, and ultimately their success.
