In this study the researcher examined the influence between a principal's self-perceived emotional intelligence and the overall organizational climate of one public elementary school as perceived by the principal's followers. These followers included teaching and non-teaching staff. It was not known how self-perceived emotional intelligence of a principal in a public elementary school influences the overall organizational climate as perceived by staff members within the school. The main research question of this study was: What is the nature of the self-perceived emotional intelligence of the principal? The additional research questions focus on emotional intelligence components. In the study, the researcher assessed a principal from a public elementary school and numerous followers from the school. Four instruments were selected and used in the study to best fit the research questions. Interviews were conducted with the principal and followers. Interview questionnaires were created by the researcher; one for the principal, and one for the followers. The Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (Bar-On EQ-I) and Organizational Climate Questionnaire (OCQ) were also used throughout the study to determine the influence of self-perceived emotional intelligence on overall organizational climate. Using a descriptive qualitative case study design within a public elementary school in the Midwest, the researcher interviewed and surveyed one principal and numerous followers from each school. The researcher found numerous recurring themes throughout the interviews and found that the principal's emotional intelligence scores were related to the overall organizational climate.
