“Emotions are involved with everything a person does and determine how well they manage themselves and adapt to the demands of life. The value of our ability to manage our behaviour, along with the positive morale, engagement, and commitment will determine how well we live our lives…. 

That’s why I call it Emotional Capital”Dr Matryn Newman PhD

In February 2017, SEDi launched a global assessment of the existing social emotional skills (SES) within over 3,000 young people aged 12 to 17 years old  –  across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

This represents a world first in assessing and measuring SES within countries, providing comprehensive metrics and insights linked to youth Self-Awareness & Self-Management, Social Skills and Resilience – measured by age, gender & location.

Emotional Capital in Young People is a global research provision exclusive to SEDi, in partnership with RocheMartin and deploy the world’s first rigorous emotional psychometric assessment tool to benchmark youth SES from age 12 years upwards.

“A heightened sense of self-awareness, better ability to manage distressing emotions, increased sensitivity to how others feel, and the capacity to manage relationships well are vital throughout life.” – Daniel Goleman

For years, senior psychology researchers had been calling for clearer definitions for emotional competencies related to Resilience and Wellbeing, stating that a “new scale development is required.” We are able to periodically Measure Youth Development impact, from the progressive building of specific social emotional skills:

Self-Awareness & Self-Management: A cluster of emotional competencies which enable the development of awareness of presence and of communication; authentically and openly.

Social Skills: A cluster of emotional competencies which enables the grasp of the emotional dimensions in all situations and how to better influence others to help achieve productive outcomes.

Resilience: A cluster of emotional competencies which enables the ability to take on challenges and to respond creatively and effectively, irrespective of set-backs, and remain open to new opportunities.

There are many ways of benchmarking personal development, but by far the most credible and compelling way is to benchmark specific emotional and social competencies using a high-quality psychometric assessment tool.

The Emotional Capital Report (ECR) is the scientifically developed psychometric from global leaders in emotional intelligence, RocheMartin.

Established over 15 years within international business communities, the ECR is recognized as the most rigorous and comprehensive technology to help HR and Learning and Development professionals measure and develop the emotional capital of their leaders.

The ECR delivers scores on the 10 emotional intelligence competencies within Self-Awareness & Self-Management, Social Skills and Resilience. Based on these scores, 19 pages of powerful coaching strategies are created as a road-map for building SES.
