Moayyad Al-Fawaeer, Ayman Wael Alkhatib


This study is aimed at identifying the effect of emotional intelligence with its dimensions (self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, motivation, and social skills) on the performance of working teams with its dimensions (task performance, contextual performance, and counterproductive performance) among employees on the operational lines of industrial companies operating in the Jordanian city of Sahab. The analysis is limited to employees in those companies, and the questionnaire is used as a data collection tool, taking a simple random sample to represent the study population. In addition to the analysis of 216 questionnaires, the SPSS program is used as a data analysis tool in the study. The study emphasizes the importance of emotional intelligence dimensions for operational team leaders, especially motivation and social skills dimensions because they have a higher effect on the task performance and contextual performance levels, while all dimensions of emotional intelligence have a negative effect on counterproductive performance for operational team members.
