Abstract:This research aims at reassessing the relationships between emotional intelligence (EI), transactional leadership, transformational leadership and leader effectiveness. The ground for reassessment is the recently developed codebook by van Gorp (2018). The codebook delivers a method for measuring verbal emotionally intelligent behaviours without relying on the use of selfassessment. Research is performed on the relationship between EI and transactional leadership, as well as on the relationship between EI and transformational leadership. Next to this, research is conducted on the effect of the augmentation hypothesis on leader effectiveness. The direct relationship between EI and leader effectiveness is also reassessed. Transactional leadership, transformational leadership and leader effectiveness was assessed using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire developed by Bass and Avolio (1995). The present study found no significant relationship between EI and transactional leadership, and EI and transformational leadership. In addition, there was found to be no significant relationship between the augmentation hypothesis and leader effectiveness. The relationship between EI and leader effectiveness was also not significant.
