Six Seconds supports positive change and people-performance
When misused, emotions can lead people into catastrophe — yet feelings are also the key to trust, communication, motivation, and optimal decisions. The difference is emotional intelligence (EQ), the science of using feelings effectively. Six Seconds is a world-leader in helping people and organizations gain the benefits of emotional intelligence through life-changing training, change-focused consulting, and innovative tools.
For over a decade Six Seconds network members have been at work in over 50 countries and in almost every economic sector helping people connect, communicate, and care. From Fortune 50 companies to community-based nonprofits, Six Seconds’ clients and partners are tapping EQ as a critical asset to improve performance while creating a better world.
