A History of Leadership in Social Emotional Learning
Established in 1997, Six Seconds is a world leader in emotional intelligence with offices in ten countries and certified consultants in over 75. A pioneer in social emotional learning, Six Seconds’ education programs are enhanced by a transformational learning approach, scientifically validated EQ measures for youth adults, and school climate, several curricula targeted to Six Seconds EQ competencies, and a growing lessons database. Certification programs and resources are available for administrators, teachers, staff, school counselors and support personnel and all school and community leaders.
In researching his 1995 bestselling book, Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman visited the school created by Six Seconds’ founders. He wrote about Self-Science, our pioneering approach to social emotional learning as one of two model approaches:
“Self-Science is a pioneer, an early harbinger of an idea that is spreading to schools coast to coast…. A list of the contents of Self-Science is an almost point-for-point match with the ingredients of emotional intelligence — and with the core skills recommended as primary prevention for the range of pitfalls threatening children…. Were he alive today, Aristotle, so concerned with emotional skillfulness, might well approve.” He also calls the program “a model for the teaching of emotional intelligence.”
