Abstract

Emotional Intelligence has been receiving increasing attention from academic researchers over the years, and an exponential field of literature exists exploring this concept. Nonetheless, the subject started to attract prominence in the 1990s since its correlation with the study of psychology and business organisations.

The study of Emotional Intelligence in the science community has been extensively and widely discussed through many scopes, mainly with regards to the correlation between leadership and job performance. Even though many variants of research into emotional intelligence exist, the investigation of generations emotional intelligence has been found insufficient.

In order to build an understanding of the emotional intelligence of the Millennials, this dissertation examines the self-comprehension they present of their own emotions and analyse the components of self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, social skills.

The research methodology undertaken was underpinned by a mono methods research design which entails exploratory strategy. Semi-structured interviews were the primary technique utilised as qualitative data collection technique in order to obtain detailed and revealing that would help to interpret the content.

The outcome of this study is the presentation of several contextual insights into the awareness of the development of this five-set of skills for this generation which are hoped to provide a point of reference for future research pertinent to academics and practitioners.
