Abstract

The article purpose is to present the theoretical analysis of the concepts of emotional intelligence and emotional leadership and to determine the application of emotional intelligence skills, as a part of leadership, by service members during managing a military unit.

The research methods: theoretical ones such as analysis of theoretical sources on service member’s professional training; classification and systematization of data related to the theoretical aspects of service member’s leadership qualities formation based on the concept of emotional intelligence.

The works of national authors for the last decade that analysed the development of leadership qualities, emotional intelligence, and military servant’s emotional leadership have been reviewed. The theories and models of emotional intelligence and emotional leadership were examined. Emotional intelligence, as an integral part of emotional leadership, contributes to the service member’s personal and professional growth, influencing their ability to manage a military unit. The basic principles of emotional intelligence in leadership were revealed, which would allow a service member to use emotional intelligence to improve managing efficiency.

The conclusion is: military leaders should develop emotional intelligence to improve the efficiency of unit management. Emotional intelligence determines service members’ emotional leadership potential; it is a component that should be used during managing a military unit, as it can positively influence organizational development during and can improve relationship management skills, namely, social sensitivity to  define new activities, the content, forms and methods of interactions in a team.
