The study compared five emotional intelligence levels of management leaders and non-management leaders within one company working on software development. The study found a statistically significant difference in four of the five levels of emotional intelligence with management leaders having a statistically significant higher score than non-management leaders. The study showed that, for this population, the possibility could be that managers select non-management leaders based solely on their technical expertise and do not consider levels of emotional intelligence. Because of the lack of attention to emotional intelligence levels of non-management leaders, the benefits of higher emotional intelligence may not be available for the team leadership situations. Thus, software development teams may be struggling with non-management leaders that are not effective in team leadership.
