Abstract
This empirical study examines the relationship between the measured perception of the supervisor’s emotional intelligence and the employee workplace performance, as it is impacted by the mediating effect of the supervisor’s feedback environment. Data were collected from selected faculties of higher education institutions within Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) by means of a cross-sectional quantitative survey using a random probability sampling technique. Statistical techniques used for the purpose of data analysis include, descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, confirmatory factor analysis, and structural equation modeling. The data analysis confirmed all of the research hypotheses excluding the impact of a supervisor’s use of emotions on the feedback environment. However, the data from the feedback environment indicates a significant mediating impact upon the relationship between supervisor’s emotional intelligence and the subordinate’s work performance. This study establishes the role of the supervisor’s emotional intelligence in defining the feedback environment as they deal with faculty members’ quality of work. Copyright © 2019, IGI Global.
