EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE APPLIED TO GLOBAL SALES CHANNELS
This article contributes to the existing body of literature on emotional intelligence by applying current theoretical frameworks within the construct of global sales channels to assess the effect of emotional intelligence on channel performance. Prior research has demonstrated that emotional intelligence is a key indicator of performance in managerial leadership roles. This research empirically studies the significance of the relationship between high levels of emotional intelligence and global sales channel performance. Results of the study show that a higher level of emotional intelligence correlates with a higher level of global sales channel performance.
