Abstract—In Malaysia, the Ministry of Education emphasizes on the quality and teaching effectiveness of educators so that they produce graduates who are able to apply skills, knowledge and abilities that they have acquired through the learning process in the real working environment. In addition, education is viewed as the most essential matter that helps to develop individuals and provide various opportunities for future. The aim of this study was to identify which components of emotional intelligence have significant impact on teaching effectiveness. For this reason, the stepwise regression analysis was carried out. The result from statistical analysis shows that self-management (β = .384) was the most important predictor followed by personal leadership (β = .196). Therefore, only two variables have an impact on teaching effectiveness. In conclusion, it is vital for universities to ensure that their lecturers who are considered as knowledge workers possess self-management and personal leadership skills to achieve high levels of career success and productivity.

Index Terms—Effective teaching, emotional intelligence, knowledge workers, lecturers, teaching effectiveness.
