29: Optimizing Emotional Intelligence

This episode features Rachel Goodman of 6Seconds.org. As per their website, 6Seconds is a nonprofit organization researching what works in Emotional Intelligence and sharing best practices via methods & tools that are Global, Scientific, Transformational. 6Seconds teaches the skills of emotional intelligence to fill the "missing link" needed for people to become more aware, intentional, and purposeful so individuals, teams, organizations, families, schools and communities flourish.

Our interest in Emotional Intelligence comes from the unfortunate reality that it is common for children to not be taught emotional hygiene growing up leading to people (some of the most successful out there) resorting to complex methods of burying a range of personal emotions and failing to empathize with others' emotions.

6Seconds presents solid tools to optimize emotional intelligence as you will learn from the conversation with Rachel Goodman.
