The purpose of this article is to seek an understanding as to how organizations are able to evolve despite the challenges attributable to the increase of competition and the reduction of resources. Studies have suggested that the lack of leadership is to blame for promoting misguided organizational change. Other experts suggest that corporate leaders who lack emotional intelligence (EI) are equally to blame for organizational failure. The “New Normal” continues to be a focal point of discussion among corporate leaders. Additionally, not only should leaders be critical thinkers and lead by example, they should have an understanding of internal and external factors associated with the overall organizational setting. Moreover, universities/colleges throughout America continue to expand their curricula to better prepare future corporate leaders. Additionally, the inclusion of EI initiatives within university/college undergraduate and graduate curricula is a high priority for most university administrators to meet U.S. job market requirements.
