Preset study explains the performance of executives on different levels of emotional intelligence and provides a link between emotional intelligence and effective work performance. 20 Male executives (out of 200) within the age range of 40 to 55yrs. from BHEL (Haridwar) and THDC (Rishikesh) of Uttarakhand State (India) were selected. Emotional intelligence scale constructed by Dhar, Hyde and Pethe (2001) constructed and standardized on the Indian Population and work Performance rating scale constructed by Prof A. P. Singh and Prof D. M. Pestonje (for the Indian population) were used to measure emotional intelligence and work performance of executives. T-tests for independent groups were used to measure the mean difference between groups. The findings of the study revealed that executives having higher emotional intelligence show better quality of work performance as compared to their counterparts.
