Emotional Intelligence Across Cultures: Theoretical and Methodological Considerations

  • Gina Ekermans
Part of the The Springer Series on Human Exceptionality book series (SSHE)

Societies continue to become more culturally diversified. In part this is due to the globalization of world trade and increase in migration and tourism. In addition, multinational corporations are gaining increased influence. The international workforce continues to become more heterogeneous and the workplace more multicultural. These changes influence the behavioral sciences, which are becoming more cross-culturally orientated (Fontaine, 2005). Researchers and practitioners of industrial/organizational psychology should be cognizant of cultural diversity and its implications in the workplace. One such implication is that cross-cultural psychological assessment continues to increase (Casillas & Robbins, 2005; Van de Vijver, 2002).
