The e-mail series comes from the Six Seconds Network. We’re a global not-for-profit community, working toward a billion people practicing emotional intelligence.

Six Seconds is one of the original pioneers of emotional intelligence. In 1967, our team began learning how to integrate emotional and intellectual development; in 1978 our Self-Science curriculum was published. In 1995, Daniel Goleman wrote about Self-Science as a model process for teaching emotional intelligence. We were founded in 1997 to share this methodology, and now we have certified practitioners working in over 125 countries.
