Thrive or Falter?
UConn Professor Finds that ‘Emotional Intelligence’ May Determine Whether Young Managers Succeed
UConn Management Professor Yuntao Dong and two of her colleagues believe they may have uncovered possible reasons why some young managers thrive in challenging new jobs, while others become frustrated and discouraged.
Dong and her colleagues revealed the findings of their research that analyzed the “emotional intelligence” of 214 study participants. While all were highly intelligent, some of them were identified as having a better ability to deal with frustration, uncertainty and other challenges associated with new, demanding tasks.
"You're going to come out with a changed perspective and new skills."
