Research Assistance Needed

I am seeking your assistance. I am studying the relationship between emotional intelligence and health care leadership competencies as part of my doctoral degree research. If you would be willing participate in this study, it would help with the refinement of a health care leadership model. Also, please forward this freely to others working in health care settings!  

As you know, health care in the United States is very complex and there is increasing pressure to reform. Consequently, much is required of leaders in health care organizations. The identification of a comprehensive leadership competence model specific to health care organizations will help with the training and development of leaders. Emotional intelligence may be a key factor, but we do not know for certain until the correlation is studied quantitatively.

If you are currently a manager or supervisor in a health care organization and between the ages of 18 and 80 years, please consider helping with this research!   

All you have to do is complete an online survey yourself, and ask three to five others to also assess you using an online survey. 

All responses will be kept confidential. None of your results will be reported. Only aggregate data will be analyzed. 

If you are willing to do this, please take the survey right away by clicking on the following link:

Thank you!
