The aim of this study is to explore the impact of Emotional Intelligence (as measured by Emotional Quotient) on employees' creativity from the viewpoint of employees in three innovative companies in Jordan. A quantitative study (a questionnaire with 211 employees) was conducted in order to achieve the study objectives. The results showed that overall Intelligence and communication have an impact on employees' creativity while emotional self awareness and empathy slightly affect employees' creativity. On the other hand, self-management does not have an impact on employees' creativity. Several recommendations were suggested based on these findings
