This is an interesting study that looked at trait EI in teachers, in the context of organizational trust, job satisfaction and also the trait EI of principals.
Our study has several practical implications regarding teachers’ job performance. First, it revealed that teachers’ trait EI can play an important role in promoting job performance in the workplace. Previous research has provided preliminary evidence that trait EI can be optimized through targeted training (e.g., Nelis et al., 2009, 2011). Thus, it is suggested that educational administrators and policymakers value its importance and incorporate it into training programs for primary school teachers.Frontiers in Psychology. 9. 2420. 10.3389/fpsyg.2018.01420.
