Nonprofit organizations traditionally lack in areas such as financial resources, leadership development as well as a history of suffering from the effects of burnout. The concept of Emotional Intelligence has been associated with effective leadership skills such as employee motivation, job satisfaction and organizational loyalty. This study applied a non-experimental quantitative analysis to examine the models of Emotional Intelligence (ability and trait) and burnout as related to current nonprofit organizational leaders. Current nonprofit organizational leaders were assessed using the surveys Trait Emotional Intelligence Questioner- Short Form, Assessing Emotions Scale and the Maslach Burnout Inventory – General Survey. These surveys were distributed to identify the predictability of Emotional Intelligence ability from trait Emotional Intelligence, burnout, gender and age through the use of a multiple linear regression analysis. The multiple linear regression statistical analysis stepwise method found that trait Emotional Intelligence is a statistically significant predictor of identifying Emotional Intelligence ability of current nonprofit organizational leaders. The practical implications of this study provided nonprofit organizations the justification to create leadership developmental practices based in foundational psychological principles. The theoretical implications of this research identified that further scholarly literature be conducted on the correspondence of trait Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Intelligence ability as distinctly differing models that are associated through forecasting and prediction.
