This comparative study explores the intricate relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and managerial effectiveness within the distinctive cultural and organizational landscapes of India and China. As global business environments continue to evolve, understanding how emotional intelligence influences managerial success becomes crucial for effective leadership. The research employs a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews, to gather comprehensive insights into the emotional intelligence competencies of managers in both countries. The study investigates the impact of emotional intelligence on key managerial outcomes such as leadership effectiveness, team collaboration, and employee engagement. In the Indian context, where cultural diversity and interpersonal relationships play a significant role, the study assesses how emotional intelligence skills contribute to successful managerial practices. In China, where hierarchical structures and collective harmony are emphasized, the research explores the nuanced ways in which emotional intelligence influences leadership styles and team dynamics. The findings reveal commonalities and differences in the manifestation of emotional intelligence across the two cultures. The study also examines the contextual factors that shape the perception and expression of emotional intelligence in managerial roles, shedding light on the cultural nuances that impact leadership effectiveness. The implications of this research extend to organizational development strategies, leadership training programs, and cross-cultural management practices. By understanding the role of emotional intelligence in managerial effectiveness within the Indian and Chinese contexts, organizations can tailor their approaches to leadership development, fostering a culturally sensitive and emotionally intelligent cadre of managers. This study contributes to the growing body of knowledge on emotional intelligence in cross-cultural management, offering valuable insights for businesses operating in diverse global markets.
