Abstract:A total of 335 respondents were selected from public and private organizations in Nigeria in order to investigate the impact of emotional intelligence and conflicts between work and family situations on the effectiveness of managers in organizations in Nigeria. These respondents were provided with a questionnaire. The findings, which are published in this paper, reveal that there is a significant combined contribution of emotional intelligence and work-family conflicts to managerial effectiveness. Emotional intelligence is found to be the strongest determinant of managerial effectiveness since it is capable of moderating the negative effect of work-family conflicts on the effectiveness of the managers. Recommendations conclude the paper. Bibliogr., note, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
