Abstract


Emotional Intelligence (EI) is emerging paradigm discussed and researched widely within the domain of organizational behavior and leadership research continuum in the workplace. This has further been recognized as an effective tool along with organizational commitment (OC) in assessing the job satisfaction. Keeping in view the relative importance and the potential of these two domains; EI and OC to the job satisfaction among academics, this pioneering study was conducted among the 90 academic staff of a technical university in Brunei Darussalam. The study using survey methodology aims not only to establish empirical evidence of examining academics’ relationship between EI, and OC but also to find out their level of job satisfaction. The result indicates that two out of seven dimensions of EI and effective component of organizational commitment strongly predict the job satisfaction. The results are discussed and recommendations are made based upon the data analysis and conclusion.
