Measure what Matters.
Six Seconds publishes innovative tools for individual and organization change. Rather than an academic diagnostic, these tools are created for change. Using rigorous statistically validation processes, these measures are reliable, insightful, and actionable — and linked to a range of proven curricula and outstanding support resources.
The SEI Line: Competencies for People Performance
The SEI tools measure key emotional intelligence competencies that drive influence, decision making, effectiveness, relationships, health, and quality of life. Based on the powerful Six Seconds Model, these tools offer tremendous insight — but even better, they provide a roadmap for increasing performance.
SEI: Self-Assess the 8 EQ competencies that drive people-performance. What is your level of emotional intelligence? Where are your strengths and how do you apply them? What weaknesses are blocking your people-performance and how do you develop?
SEI360: Get accurate feedback about the way you’re using your EQ competencies. How are your EQ skills coming across to key stakeholders? Are your supervisors, colleagues, direct reports, and other business partners seeing your strengths — and if not, where are the gaps?
SEI-YV and pYV: Create a snapshot of a child’s current EQ skills and a framework for growth. How are children developing in these key social-emotional domains? How do they see their performance in life and school? What competencies can they use to fuel key life and school outcomes?
The VitalSigns Line: Drivers of Organizational Effectiveness
A rapid, accurate check of operational “vital signs,” these tools put people on the dashboard. Invaluable in change and transformation, these tools provide baseline data and measure ROI while they save time and money by focusing implementation efforts. The VitalSigns tools all use a practical operational effectiveness model including Motivation, Teamwork, Change, Execution, and Trust.
LVS – Leadership VitalSigns: Which aspects of leadership performance are in play? Are you strong in all four quadrants of operational excellence (Strategy, People, Organization, Operation)? How are you creating and leveraging trust?
TVS – Team VitalSigns: To what extent is the team more than a collection of individuals? Where is the team aligned and misaligned, and what are the key drivers for building team performance?
OVS – Organization VitalSigns: What is the organizational climate? To what degree are various organizational units aligned? What’s the real story on how employees are connecting with the company, leaders, strategy and vision?
Outside the two lines, we publish:
ASC – The Assessment of School Climate: Quickly measure the intangible drivers around Empathy, Accountability, Respect, and Trust — which drive key outcomes: Learning, Safety, and Connectedness. What is the climate for learning? How do students, teachers, parents, and other stakeholders experience the school?
CLA – Customer Loyalty Audit: How are customers experiencing your organization? Do they understand what you offer? Are your people building quality relationships with them? Do they value your brand? Are you building loyalty?
Customer Research: Tap our experience in people metrics to understand almost any aspect of employee and/or customer behavior. How are people really feeling, how do those feeling drive their behaviors, and what are the most effective ways you can improve?
