Increased globalization and competition have forced companies to implement solutions at a rapid pace using new and evolving technologies. As a result, companies are now initiating an increasing number of complex projects each year.  Project management (PM) practitioners – the individuals responsible for leading a team of individuals through the planning and implementation of these complex projects – need to understand the tools and techniques necessary to implement a complex project successfully to meet the strategic goals of the organization.  Emotional intelligence (EI) is a primary component of leadership.  This presentation explores the findings from my study which focused on the Goleman model of EI to explore how EI competencies manifest themselves in Portfolio, Program and Project practitioners who managed a complex project.
