This research project involved an investigation into the relationship between college students' use of emotional intelligence (EI) and intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as a measurement of students' transformational leadership (TL) style. The study included the implementation of the Emotional Quotient Inventory (BarOn, 2002), the Academic Motivation Scale (Vallerand, Pelletier, Blais, Senecal, & Vallieres, 1993), and the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (Avolio & Bass, 1995). A descriptive correlation quantitative analysis helped determined that no significant relationship exists between 145 college students' use of EI and their intrinsic motivation (IM). However, a significant relationship does exist between 145 college students' use of EI and their extrinsic motivation (EM), and a significant correlation exists among college students' use of EI, EM, and IM as predictors of their TL style. The implications of the research findings indicate the need for transformational leaders to embrace EI, IM, and EM toward becoming more self-actualized leaders.
