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 livesDr Martyn Newman PhD.

In 2012 we joined forces with RocheMartin to establish a solution for evaluating and researching the evolution of social emotional skills (known as “soft skills”) within the heart of communities across the globe. We call this understanding Emotional Resilience.

Together we address an international need for clearer definitions of the social emotional competencies which make-up Emotional Resilience within the heart of communities. We provide a rigorous new scale and the process to benchmark whole communities and reveal evolving Emotional Resilience; from age 12 years upwards. We utilise globally acclaimed emotional psychometric capability, a vast normative database and deep science based research expertise.

What We Benchmark

Pioneering for Youth Development

Pioneering Youth Metrics

In February 2017 we set out to build an international normative database, measuring existing youth Emotional Resilience from across Africa, the Middle East and Europe. Over 3,000 data sets captured from young people aged 12 to 19 years, enabled RocheMartin to build a world-first evaluation tool. We also revealed ground-breaking insights into existing youth Emotional Resilience across genders, cultures, geographical boundaries and nationalities.

Emotional Capital in Young People is our proprietary benchmark and research process, which globally reviews evolving youth Emotional Resilience by countries to reveal youth metrics, and new insights which we present at global SEDi Human Development seminars.  Find out more.
