This implies that emotional intelligence development is an incremental process (Goleman and Cherniss 2001;Cartwright and Pappas 2008;Daher 2015). ...

This study aims to investigate the levels of emotional intelligence for managers in public and private hospitals in Jordan for the purpose of identifying the relative practice of emotional intelligence dimensions by managers in each sector. The research will also look into the differences (gaps) in self- and other-assessed emotional intelligence for managers in both public and private hospitals. As such, the theoretical importance of this research lies in its ability to contribute to filling the missing gap in the literature while forming the basis for or being the object of reference for any future research in the field. The researchers adopted a quantitative research design. Data were collected using a 360-degree questionnaire, in which managers’ self-assessments, and the assessments of two other raters (supervisors, peers, or subordinates), were used to measure the levels of managers’ emotional intelligence in both public and private hospitals. A total of 179 managers and 358 raters participated in our study. The results of the study revealed that differences between managers’ self-assessments and others’ assessments might be an indicator of inflated managers’ self-assessments. Differences between managers’ self-assessments and others’ assessments were larger in public hospitals compared with those in private hospitals. Hence, our study provides valuable recommendations and implications to enhance the practice of emotional intelligence among managers both in public and private hospitals in Jordan.

Метою є дослідження такої характеристики емоційного інтелекту курсантів військового інституту,як здатність розпізнавати емоції, а також оцінитипередбачуваність вибору стратегій подолання бойового та військово-професійного стресу в залежностівід типу емоцій. Методи і матеріали. Дослідженняпроводилося у квітні 2022 року серед курсантів третього курсу Військового інституту телекомунікацій та інформатизації, які навчаються за спеціальністю“Військове управління”. На першому етапі дослідження було здійснено активацію переживань курсантів за допомогою кататимних імагінацій (продукування образів) – їм було запропоновано намалюватисимволічні образи їх переживань. На другому етапібули використані інструменти самозвіту – курсантам було запропоновано описати емоції, які вонивідчувають з приводу пережитих подій та ті заходи,які вони вживають, щоб створити баланс між собоюі зовнішньою ситуацією. Отримані результати булиопрацьовані за допомогою дескриптивного і кореляційно-регресійного аналізу. Результати. З’ясовано,що 22.0% курсантів продемонстрували нездатністьрозібратися у своїх емоціях та почуттях – вони незмогли назвати свої емоції з приводу пережитихподій та намалювати символічні образи їх переживань. 78.0% курсантів зуміли визначити свої емоції.Курсанти відчували емоції, які мають складні структури, але у яких можна було виділити такі базовікомпоненти: “тривога”, “гнів”, “апатія”, “надія”. Усьогобуло названо тридцять два видів емоцій та емоційнихстанів, що може свідчити про ясне розуміння курсантами свого емоційного стану та тих емоцій, під впливом яких вони перебувають. Вибір копінг-стратегійздійснювався курсантами на основі оптимістичної/песимістичної інтерпретації стресової ситуації.Висновки. На спроможність військовослужбовціврозпізнавати свої емоції впливають такі чинники:1) невід’ємною частиною та ключовим нормативнимкомпонентом військової субкультури є придушенняемоцій та уникнення переживань; 2) існує небезпекаповсякденного бойового та військово-професійногостресу, що пов’язано зі специфікою військової діяльності; 3) ймовірність виникнення в умовах бойовогота військово-професійного стресу особливого психологічного стану алекситимії; 4) ризик розвиткув умовах бойового та військово-професійного стресупсихологічного стану емоційної бурі або емоційногостану моральної втоми, пригніченості та байдужостідо того, що відбувається. Тому, вивчення емоційногоінтелекту військовослужбовців потребує розробкиспеціального інструментарію. Між емоціями, щопереживають військовослужбовці під час бойовогота військово-професійного стресу і вибором стратегій подолання стресу існує значуща кореляція.

This study examined the relationship of career mentoring to the promotions and compensation received by 404 early career managers and professionals working in a variety of organizations. The results indicate that with a number of variables controlled, career mentoring was related to both promotion rate and total compensation. The results also support the conclusion that career-oriented mentoring has a greater relationship with promotion rate for people from the highest-level socioeconomic backgrounds than for those from lower-level backgrounds. We provide several explanations for the effects of career mentoring on early career progress and suggest a number of areas for future research on mentoring and other developmental relationships. Studies of the early career progress of managers and professionals have frequently been based on the principle that ability, achievement, and con

In recent years, retailers have placed greater emphasis on developing long-term relationships to obtain sustainable benefits on issues such as product quality, price, and markdown allowances. The author examines the impact of situational factors such as the time orientation of a relationship and the importance of the issues to be resolved on the use of various negotiation strategies (problem solving, compromise, and aggressive) in channel relationships. He also investigates the impact of different strategies on channel member outcomes and satisfaction. The data used to test the model were obtained in a mail survey of 124 retail buyers in six regional department store chains. The study results indicate that when retailers are long-term oriented, problem-solving and passive aggressive strategies are used for resolving conflicts on major issues. The use of problem-solving strategy to resolve major conflicts resulted in higher outcomes and greater satisfaction than either compromise or aggressive strategies. The findings also provide insights on the use of various negotiation strategies by retailers to resolve conflicts on important and relatively unimportant issues.

Data from qualitative field studies of 22 cross-race (African-American and white) supportive work relationships between pairs of junior and senior people are used to examine how people's strategies for dealing with the issue of race affect the kind of relationship that develops between the two and whether the senior person becomes merely a sponsor for the protege, providing him or her with career support such as advocacy for promotions, feedback, and coaching, or whether the senior person becomes a mentor, offering psychosocial support and friendship along with instrumental career support. The study showed that the parties' preferred strategy for dealing with racial difference-either denying and suppressing it or discussing it openly-and whether both parties preferred the same strategy influenced the kind of relationship that developed. Only when the parties preferred the same strategy did the more supportive mentor-protege relationship develop. The paper provides a model of how racial dynamics affect cross-race developmental relationships.

This paper focuses on the relationship between the internal dynamics and success of a population of intense work groups, professional string quartets in Great Britain. We observed three basic paradoxes: leadership versus democracy, the paradox of the second violinist, and confrontation versus compromise. The central findings indicate that the more successful quartets recognized but did not openly discuss the paradoxes. Instead, they managed these inherent contradictions implicitly and did not try to resolve them. The discussion addresses the study of intense work groups, the forces that drive these paradoxes, and potential applications to other organizational groups.

This article explores the possibility of efficacy-performance spirals in individuals, groups, and organizations. Spirals are deviation-amplifying loops in which the positive, cyclic relationship between perceived efficacy and performance builds upon itself. Collective efficacy is defined, and upward and downward spirals are considered. Evidence from multiple levels of analysis is presented, and factors affecting the occurrence, continuation, and stopping of spirals are proposed. In addition, we consider compositional and cross-level effects by proposing factors that will moderate the relationship between spirals at different levels of analysis. Overall, 15 propositions are presented as guidelines for future research.
