EQ Assessments

Minds and Emotions Centre applies the Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment (SEI®) which are a suite of well validated, effective tests that measure EQ and equip people with a framework for putting emotional intelligence into action.

The SEI is scientifically validated, practical measure of emotional intelligence with an action-oriented model supporting people to use and improve their EQ skills. Built on the Six Seconds Model of Emotional Intelligence, the SEI is unusual:

  • SEI provides a framework for action
  • is simple enough to jump in, but sophisticated enough to drive long-term transformation
  • is led by a global team, available and validated in 11 languages (more coming)
  • is designed for learning and development, it has the statistical rigor to be used in selection and in advanced applications

What makes SEI such an effective assessment tool?

SEI is used in 127 countries for a broad range of training, coaching, selection, and development needs (read case studies using the tests). SEI is best-in-class because of the blend of robust psychometrics, easy practicality, and global relevance.

Where several other EQ tools provide meaningful feedback, the SEI is unique because it’s not JUST feedback, it delivers a process framework that equips people to actually USE emotional intelligence (here is a comparison of some of the leading tests). The SEI also links EQ to real life; it includes two questionnaires, an assessment of current “success factors” (e.g., effectiveness and relationships) and the EQ measure; this puts EQ in the context of important work & life outcomes, providing the “so what?” to make EQ relevant.


Assessment Tools

Listed below are the suite of tools that will be employed in the coaching of EQ employed by Senior Coach at Minds and Emotions Centre:


  • Vital Signs

    Vital Signs are statistically validated measures that capture key information about the people side of performance. Built on a model with solid business logic as well as sound science, the tools connect people’s perceptions and attitutes with hard business outcomes in an actionable, practical framework.

  • Brain Profiles

    The Brain Brief Profile (BBP) is a one-page synthesis of the way a person’s brain processes emotional and cognitive data. Starting from neuroscience and 15 yearsof research on emotional intelligence, the BBP provides a simple, practical summary of how a person’s style for using emotional intelligence — ie, integrating thinking+feeling to make good decisions to drive positive results.

  • EQ Neural Net – The AI for Emotional Intelligence

    The EQ Neural Net is an assistive intelligence, powered by two decades of research on emotional intelligence, that offers coaches insights to help their clients put EQ into action. EQ Neural Net delivers practical insights and powerful questions to use emotional intelligence to increase effectiveness, relationships, quality of life, and wellbeing.

  • SEI360

    EQ is the ability to be smart with feelings. How is someone performing with their emotional intelligence? The SEI 360 measures EP – emotional intelligence performance – or the impact of EQ on others.
    It’s an incredible tool for in-depth coaching, performance development, succession planning, and team transformation. The SEI360 is “just simple enough,” brief but substantive, providing clear, valuable feedback in the framework of the powerful Six Seconds Model.
    A full-featured multi-rater assessment, the SEI 360 combines a statistically solid model with a practical feedback mechanism.

  • SEI – Youth Version

    The SEI-YV provides youth, family members, educators, and counselors with a powerful tool for growth. The SEI-YV begins with an assessment of important life-outcomes – the “Barometers of Life” which include Good Health, Relationship Quality, Life Satisfaction, Personal Achievement, Self-Efficacy, and an overall composite.

  • SEI pYV – Perspective on Youth Assessment

    The Perspective on Youth Version (pYV) is a powerful tool in the SEI suite that affords an opportunity for learning about a youth’s social emotional learning strengths and and providing support for growth in all areas. It provides insight into the child’s strengths, needs, and how they compare to other youth — all from the perspective of an adult who knows the child well.

  • SEI Certification

    To use the SEI toolkit with others, certification training is required. Certified Assessors learn to administer, interpret, and debrief the SEI in the “EQ Assessor Certification.”
