When emotional intelligence predicts team performance: Further validation of the short version of the Workgroup Emotional Intelligence Profile

Abstract : The purpose of this research was to extend the validation of the short version of the Workgroup Emotional Intelligence Profile (WEIP-S), notably by examining its predictive validity for team performance. Six studies were conducted (N = 1810) to achieve this objective. In Study 1, the WEIP-S was translated into French and examined with respect to its factor structure and reliability (N = 311). In Study 2, the factor structure was validated in a sample of French employees in various occupations (N = 1141). Studies 3 and 4 (N = 106) examined the test-retest reliability and assessed the convergent validity. The predictive validity of the WEIP-S was examined in Study 5 (N = 80, 40 dyads) and in Study 6 (N = 172, 57 teams). The results indicate that the WEIP-S has a four-factor structure and can be reliably measured with 16 items. Moreover, it can be used as a predictive measure of team performance: groups with higher average levels of emotional intelligence performed better than those with lower levels. This research establishes the suitability of the WEIP-S for various occupations and offers researchers a short, validated measure to predict team performance.
