Six Seconds is the ultimate program to help people grow their emotional IQ. In my school, it is the basis of our program — we could not teach our kids without it.
Pam Clarke, Head of School, Helios School

Six Seconds assessments have not only been transformational for me as a leader in my coaching sessions, but they have provided invaluable insight for all the school’s stakeholders – from executives, to educational panel teams, to students and parents. These assessments helped us reshape the whole school – and we are more aligned and performing at a higher level than any other time since the school was established in 1987. In my tenure, I made sure that these assessments guided my coaching sessions with students, parents, teachers and senior leaders, and we have used them in recruitment as well.

Tazmin Alibhai, Owner, Leap Afrique, Nairobi, Kenya

I’ve been studying EQ for a number of years; I began looking for a robust EQ program/system that I could fully integrate into our organization’s leadership development program, as well as enhance my coaching experience. After about 6 months of research, I chose Six Seconds. I found the model to be thorough, easy to understand and well-grounded in solid research. Their resource library and support personnel are extremely knowledgeable and responsive and the way they melded their EQ model into the International Coaching Foundation credentialing is outstanding. Lastly, being a member of Six Seconds Global Community provides a valuable insight into different cultures and approaches to applying EQ.

Gertrude Masuku, DynamicLearning

Selling with EQ was invaluable because it addresses that portion of the sales culture that comes naturally to a great salesman but is not seen as valuable to our not so great sales people. The ability to understand how our customer’s emotions and their perception of our taking care of their emotional well being in our service to them, can be instrumental in winning or losing an opportunity. The trainers did a great job of connecting to our diverse class of participants from around the world. I highly recommend Six Seconds emotional intelligence programs – except to our competition
