In this paper efforts are made to develop a conceptual framework ofthe relationshipbetween Transformational Leadership(TL) and Emotional Intelligence(EI). It is important to know more about this relationship, because a growing body of research indicates that transformational leaders are smart with their feelings and they drive the emotions of those they lead in the right direction. Transformational leadership style isrelationship centered and transformational leaders influence the team to do more than expected. People will follow a leader who inspires them. This research paper develops the relationship framework after an intensive literature search on TL and El. This framework is used in developing a measuring instrument and the relationship betweenTL and El is empirically examined among 300 leaders from different industries. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
