The study was conducted to investigate leaders' leadership styles and emotional intelligence at Hunan University of Humanities, Science and Technology, China by using the descriptive, comparative–correlational method of research. The emerging results on the relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership are strengthened by the recent findings of this study, signifying a high correlation between these constructs. The study served as empirical evidence suggesting that coaching programs as practical outputs of the study could be considered to improve the effectiveness of leaders. Change can only be realized and sustained if leaders are emotionally and intellectually engaged in the leadership terrain.
