Résumé
Emotional intelligence has been recognized as an important meta-competency for helping individuals to navigate throughout their career. However, the multidimensionality of emotional intelligence has seldom been fully investigated at the measurement level, and it remains unclear how specific dimensions predict career-related outcomes over and above the general factor of emotional intelligence. We addressed this issue using a bifactor-ESEM framework among a sample of Belgian adult learners (N = 445), and explored the incremental and predictive validity of emotional intelligence dimensions on important career-related outcomes (i.e., emotional exhaustion, work-family conflict, family-work conflict, and career satisfaction). Beyond the predictive effect of the general factor of emotional intelligence on career-related outcomes, we demonstrated the specific contribution of several dimensions (comprehension, regulation and utilization). Our results support the importance of distinguishing the specific effects of emotional intelligence dimensions and bring important contributions for guidance counselors and for designing tailor-made interventions.
