Throughout the world, we’re facing a crisis of division and separation. It’s not a lack of cognitive intelligence that got us here, but emotional intelligence. Unlocking EQ opens the door for people to embrace the critical importance of emotional development and provides a practical framework for improving EQ. It creates the possibility of a brighter future for all of us.- Hanley Brite, UEQ participant, USA
Unlocking emotional intelligence… Unlocking a better future
Unlocking EQ is Six Seconds’ powerful, 1 day introduction to the world of emotional intelligence. It teaches the basics of EQ and how to practice it. “It’s the beginning for many people in understanding that they have a choice that can change their lives,” says Lynette Vaive, Six Seconds’ Regional Network Director for North America. “The empowering choice of navigating their emotions in a healthier way and choosing responses that improve their lives. That’s the gift of Unlocking EQ.”
Emotional intelligence isn’t something that comes from outside of us, that is given to us. Everyone already has EQ. But we are not exactly taught as children to embrace emotions and treat them as a valuable resource. We are mostly taught to keep them safely locked up. Unlocking EQ is about opening up that box and recognizing that each of us has the keys to unlock our own emotional intelligence, and that when we do, it opens up all sorts of wonderful possibilities.
“EQ is no longer just a desired skill, but a necessity. It matters more now than ever before if we want to create a better tomorrow. This course explores the basics of EQ and how to practice it in a brilliant way.”
– Shawn Cornet, South Africa
