The following document is a sociological exploration of emotional intelligence and empowerment and its implications on women in the work place. I create a series questions for working-women based on previous literature on emotional intelligence, empowerment and leadership. Through in-depth interviews, I construct an analysis of leadership. Through questions relating to interpersonal relationships, conflict management style, and family values conclusions are drawn regarding emotional intelligence and its effectiveness in the work place. I conclude with a broader discussion of executive women, the unseen pressure of family on women in the work force, and the ways in which emotional intelligence may facilitate greater success in the work place as well as in the home.
