Six Seconds is a global, not-for-profit organisation working in the field of emotional intelligence with an extremely good reputation. They research emotions in learning and performance, and translate the science into practical tools that create value in education and in organisations. The Six Seconds model of emotional intelligence is very simple, so it can be understood by anybody, whatever their age.
The first component is Know Yourself. It's about knowing yourself through your feelings; how you recognise your feelings, patterns in your feelings, and how you use this information and the information contained in emotions.
The second component is Give Yourself. This is about applying your thinking to working empathetically with others, and their emotions, in pursuing goals that are ethical and noble.
The final component is to Choose Yourself particularly around how you act, what actions you take through your thinking and through navigating emotions. It considers optimism and motivation, and focuses on the consequences of the action that is taken.
All three work together with each component influencing the other.
The core components are feeling, thinking and acting. All three working in alignment means what we do is about knowing how to work with and use emotional information, why we do it. It's about giving yourself having thought through the consequences and how we do it is about choosing the right actions.
All of these work together to give you your emotional intelligence.
