Abstract: Introduction. Subjective well-being refers to low levels of negative affectivity, levels of positive affectivity and high overall lifesatisfaction (Lambert, Passmore, Holder, 2015). Higher subjective well-being relates to better physical, mental health and survival(Pressman, Cohen, 2006).

Emotional intelligence and their aspectswere assessed by emotional intelligence scale (Schutte and others., 1998). Subjective well-being was assessed by Satisfaction with lifescale (Diener, Emmons, Larsen, Griffin, 1985) and Positive and Negative Affect Schedule – expanded form (Watson, Clarck, 1999).Perceived social support was assessed by the Social Support Scale (Sherbourne, Stewart, 1991).Results. Results revealed that leader’s life satisfaction was predicted only by informational social support ( = .238, p=0.026), subordinate’slife satisfaction was predicted by emotion selfcontrol ( = .413, p=0.0001) and by use of emotion ( = -.228, p=0.007).[...]
