Six Seconds is a global network supporting people to create positive change – everywhere, all the time. Our experience and research shows that the skills of emotional intelligence (EQ) are invaluable for leading change. Therefore, we conduct research, develop powerful measures and tools for EQ development, and support a world-wide network of experts to put the learnable, measurable skills of emotional intelligence into action. Our vision is that by 2039, one billion people will be practicing the skills of EQ. For more information, see /about .
