Introduction: People with high emotional intelligence are more likely to have more satisfaction with life, enjoying a family environment, and sharing their feelings with others. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of emotional intelligence through mobile education on job satisfaction among female staff of Yazd Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test post-test design and a control group. To evaluate the job satisfaction, a job questionnaire questionnaire was used. Out of the staff of the Health School, all 50 women were selected by census method as the intervention group. After completing job satisfaction questionnaires by all female staff, emotional intelligence topics were taught to the intervention group through mobile training for 5 weeks. After 40 days, the job satisfaction questionnaires were completed again in both intervention and control groups. Data were analyzed using SPSS software.
Results: The results showed that training emotional intelligence by mobile, significantly influences the job satisfaction, workplace satisfaction, satisfaction from colleagues, and satisfaction from supervisor in female employees of school of public health (P-Value<0.05), but it has no significant effect on the satisfaction from salary and bonus (P-Value>0.05).
