Abstract:     
Emotional Intelligence is regarded as an important concept that leaders have to learn for the success of any organization. In reviewing the Sri Lankan literature on emotional intelligence and job satisfaction, it was difficult to find any investigation which has focused on the relationship between emotional intelligence and job satisfaction in the context of schools and, in particular, teachers. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between Principals’ emotional intelligence and teachers’ job satisfaction in the national schools in Sri Lanka. The data were collected from a sample of 50 principals and 200 teachers using convenience sampling method. Data collected were analyzed using regression analysis and correlation coefficient. The results of the study indicated that emotional intelligence of principals had a significant positive relationship with job satisfaction of teachers. It was recommended that emotional intelligence of the principals should be enhanced to improve the job satisfaction of the teachers.
