Abstract


Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to highlight the nature and use of a model of emotional intelligence (EI) characteristics in relation to members of natural resource management committees in Australia. Approach: An overview of the impact of reforms in the public management domain upon the operation of Australia’s natural resource management workflow framework is followed by a review of EI characteristics that are relevant to the goals and methods of natural resource management committees. A pilot study was conducted to test the relevance of an EI framework to the work of such committees. Some suggestions are made specifically pertinent to the Australian Government policy, in a region, which is a major player in resource management innovation both nationally and globally. Findings: The outcomes of the pilot study provide a positive basis for the continuation of research within the area of EI and its influence on the operating effectiveness of natural resource management committees. Originality and Value: Based on emerging research findings on EI and public sector management principles, this paper takes a user-centred view of the committee management process. Suggestions are made for EI applicable strategies, which will enhance the effectiveness of this EI-based novel paradigm in an Australian context. Based on the results of the pilot it appears worthwhile to conduct further in-depth studies to tease out further details of the applicability of the EI paradigm on the management of natural resource management committees.
