Abstract:This research aims to further explore the applications of the rising concept of Emotional Intelligence(EI). EI has become more and more popular, both in recruitment practices and in the scientific literature. However, in the context of leadership emergence, this topic still lacks coverage. To explore the concept of EI in relation to leadership emergence, research was performed in an Agile Scrum work environment. In this environment, there is no leader appointed and the tradional leadership role is distributed over the team members. To measure the level of EI, the Wong and Law EI scale was used. Next to this, the impact of the product owner role on leadership is also further investigated. No significant relation was found between EI and leadership emergence. However, for the impact of the product owner role on leadership emergence significant results were found.
