—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
