Evaluating the Effectiveness of Managers

*****

The effectiveness ***** managers in a te*****m environment is directly linked to *****ir emotional intelligence (EI) and corresponding ability to create an environment of transformational leadership in their organizations.

***** managers have the ability ***** balance these attributes while at the same time accomplishing project deadlines, milestones, and eventual project completion while ***** the same time getting high levels of cooperation ***** coordination. The intent of this literature review is to provide insights into how managers are using a varied style of emotional intelligence and transformational strategies to manage *****ir own activities and those of the teams they manage, infusing team dynamics with emotional intelligence, making the tasks of accomplishing key miles*****nes more achievable.
