Organisational politics are becoming a common topic in management studies because of the negative influence it can have on the workforce. This study was conducted to examine the effect of emotional intelligence on organisational politics in government link companies (GLCs) in Malaysia. The study's research framework was supported by the leader member exchange (LMX) theory. Data was collected from middle to top level managers in the GLCs in Malaysia using a stratified random sampling method. Three hundred and twenty-five usable questionnaires were collected and analysed using partial least square structural equation model (PLS-SEM). The findings show that there is a significant link between emotional intelligence and organisational politics. This study provides an understanding that the presence of emotional intelligence can help in improving a leader's ability to manage the political environment. This study could be replicated within other industries by refining the items used as a measurement variable. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Innovation and Sustainable Development Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

Organisational politics are becoming a common topic in management studies because of the negative influence it can have on the workforce. This study was conducted to examine the effect of emotional intelligence on organisational politics in government link companies (GLCs) in Malaysia. The study's research framework was supported by the leader member exchange (LMX) theory. Data was collected from middle to top level managers in the GLCs in Malaysia using a stratified random sampling method. Three hundred and twenty-five usable questionnaires were collected and analysed using partial least square structural equation model (PLS-SEM). The findings show that there is a significant link between emotional intelligence and organisational politics. This study provides an understanding that the presence of emotional intelligence can help in improving a leader's ability to manage the political environment. This study could be replicated within other industries by refining the items used as a measurement variable.
