This quantitative corrleational descriptive study was to investigate if a correlation existed between the emotional intelligence (EI) and transformational leadership attributes of African American men and women. The study used 23 African American men and women in management or leadership positions throughout the United States. The purpose of the study was to explore the relationship between emotional intelligence and transformational leadership skills of African American men and women. The research questions guiding the study were (a) is there a significant difference between EI components of African American men compared to African American women? (b) Is there a significant difference between the EI components and transformational leadership skills of African American men compared to African American women? The EQ-i by Reuven Bar-On (2006) and the MLQ5x by Avolio and Bass (2004) were used as the instruments to assess emotional intelligence and transformational skills. Overall, results from the data revealed that a positive correlation existed for the emotional intelligence attributes for African American men and women. The results also indicated there is no significant correlation with emotional intelligence and transformational leadership skills of African American men and women. Further studies should be initiated to explore this research with a larger sample size and across ethnic groups.
