Founded in 1996 with support from the Fetzer Institute, the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence is dedicated to advancing the research and practice related to emotional intelligence in organizations. With 25 current members from a variety of fields ranging from academic appointments to consultants, the Consortium continues to fulfill its mandate to "study all that is known about emotional intelligence in the workplace." First-time visitors seeking to learn about the basic activities of the Consortium will want to spend some time browsing through the Research section of the site, which contains helpful background papers addressing the importance of
emotional intelligence and developing standards for the field. The site also contains the detailed and recently updated research agenda of the Consortium, along with profiles of current members. Finally, a detailed reference section contains a detailed bibliography of scholarship that will be of interest to those seeking to read additional material within the discipline. [KMG]
