In our research we study the creative personality and the emotional identity of the leadership in workplace of organizations. Social-clinical psychologists process the emotional intelligence as a “mental ability” as an ‘aptitude’ in common sense.

The question of the creative identity of the leadership includes some psychological theories abilities as verbal and non-verbal expression of emotions, communication with the employers and other multidimensional variables and plans.

The field research was a case study of a group of young students of the University of Athens. The hypothesis was to assess the stereotype of the current identity of the leadership and to study the active listening of the leadership reflects caring and respect of his employees. This means that there is a positive feedback from the superior (manager of the organization) to his employees.

The subjects want the head of their company to collaborate with them. Communication, responsibility, cooperation, knowledge, sociability are the words used by the students, but also have an achievement of quality goals such as creation, problem-solving, reliability of predictions, elimination of delays.

The active listening of the leadership is the most important thing for the students of our research. The words “communication”, “cooperative” and “reliable” have been written 248 times (as we have seen to our figures of the statistic plan), either the leader was a third person (an ideal leader) or they imagine themselves as the leader of the company.

Leadership style plays a very important role and refers to the extent to which a leader is either relationship or task motivated. He must offer a positive feedback, cooperation with his workgroup and create a collective common sense bands and social networks.
