The new realities of police cooperation and leading in the international level ask for culturally attuned and emotionally sensitive global police leaders who can react to the challenges of the particular foreign environments of various countries and complex interpersonal work situations. Also for police leaders with the different frame of responsibility, it is important to be self-aware and empathetic and be able to read and regulate their own emotions while intuitively grasping how others feel and gauging their organization’s emotional state. The most gifted leaders accomplish that by using a mysterious blend of psychological abilities known as EI. Therefore the purpose of the research is to explore how the EI impacts to successful police leadership and cooperation in a global world.
