Practical experiences emphasize that effective global leadership is essential for rapidly changing multinationals and emotional intelligence has been identified by a large number of researchers as a major driver of effective leadership. Although academic evidences are increasing, the gap on the connection between emotional intelligence and leadership still maintains.

Directions of future research of EI of global leaders may refer to the investigation of job satisfaction, organizational engagement or followers' motivation.
