Abstract—The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the application of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) as a feasible decision-making technique to prioritize emotional intelligence (EI) training needs of a specific group of junior high school principals. A hieratical decision-making framework developed based on the Emotional Skills Assessment Process (ESAP) was structured into an AHP questionnaire issued to 9 principal candidates and incumbent principals as participants of the study. Results of the AHP analysis suggest that scenario-based EI interventions for enhancing important EI skills are made possible via AHP analysis. The EI framework and AHP technique were introduced with specific implications for planning EI trainings by taking contextually specific needs into consideration. Further research directions were discussed in an effort to maximize the effects of EI trainings for school principals.
