Academics have an enormous endeavor to advance in higher education institutions, and responsiveness regarding to their performance, leaders’ emotional intelligence and leaders’ idealized influence are fundamental. Research on emotional intelligence and job performance is expanding at considerable pace, but emotional intelligence and intention to perform has received less attention. In addition, study on transformational leadership towards intention to perform has been established but study on a single component, idealized influence has been eluded. To address this gap in the literature, this study is intended to examine the leader’s emotional intelligence abilities and idealized influence towards academic’s intention to perform. Drawing from attribution theory and transformational leadership, the study hypothesized that emotional intelligence and intention to perform will be mediated by idealized influence.
