The aim of this research was to find out the importance of emotional intelligence for female leaders from the perspective of female leaders. The female leaders were asked what they thought emotional intelligence is, if they considered them emotionally intelligent leaders, and which areas of emotional intelligence they considered to be their strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, they were asked what kind of traits an emotionally intelligent leader should have and whether emotional intelligence was visible in their work places. The aim of the interviews was to understand their perceptions on emotional intelligence.
