Variation in the constructs based on the type of students’ participation in activities (participant and non-participant) had a significant difference in emotional intelligence, personal resilience and each leadership style, while gender had a significant difference in personal resilience and transactional leadership. There was a significant difference of laissez-faire leadership among students in different fields of study.

The emotional intelligence had a moderate significant relationship with transactional leadership, and a very weak relationship with laissez-faire leadership. Personal resilience had a weak relationship with transactional leadership, and had no significant relationship with laissez faire leadership style. Transformational leadership had a weak significant relationship with transactional leadership, and had no significant relationship with laissez faire leadership.

The conclusion of this research shows that multiples student activities can develop students’ personal resilience and leadership styles through emotional intelligence.
