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

In February 2017, SEDi and RocheMartin 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 represented a world first in assessing and measuring the specific competencies which make up Emotional Resilience in young people; providing comprehensive metrics and insights linked to youth Self-Awareness & Self-Management, Social Skills and Resilience – measured by age, gender & location.

This invaluable youth data became the normative data sets which launched the world’s first Emotional Resilience benchmark tool to establish levels of social emotional skills by Age, Gender, Location and Nationality.


Lead-edge Benchmark of Youth Emotional Resilience.

SEDi has pioneered the way for countries to benchmark evolving Youth Emotional Resilience, creating a new insight and metrics globally. 

SEDi founder Jay Baughan formed a partnership with RocheMartin co-founder Dr Martyn Newman, to establish the Emotional Capital in Young People as a global research provision.

SEDi now provides Public, Private and Third Sector teams with a unique service to Define and Measure their evolving youth Emotional Resilience.

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.
