Emotional Labor Questionnaire
We are interested in learning about a concept called "emotional labor." Emotional labor is the way people manage their emotions in order to do their job effectively. For example, flight attendants are expected to be friendly even when passengers are rude. For teachers, emotional labor might involve showing enthusiasm even when a student is disengaged in the lesson. For administrators, it might involve feigning concern to a parent who perpetually complains. This concept has been studied in many occupations and workplaces but has not achieved much attention in schools, and insufficient attention among principals, especially when comparing principal's work in different countries. Our study aims to compare the concept of "emotional labor" among principals in different countries and in different contexts. Our goal is to find ways to support principals' emotional labor keyed to the specific cultural contextual needs.
