Emotional intelligence is interpreted as the ability to listen to emotional whispers, and make it an important source of information to understand yourself and others to achieve a goal. If the principal can use this emotional intelligence well, the emotional relationship between the principal and teachers and employees will always be maintained and is expected to improve the performance of subordinates in achieving organizational goals.
