The EQ Model is a framework for understanding and harnessing the power of emotions.
We use this model, developed by Six Seconds, as an action plan for using emotional intelligence in our daily life as students, teachers and parents. The EQ model shows us tools and goals for growing in our emotional intelligence, and is used throughout every aspect of Synapse, from TK to 8th graders, and parents and staff.
Know Yourself consists of the competencies of Enhance Emotional Literacy and Recognize Patterns. This pursuit is about clearly seeing what you feel and do. Emotions are data, and these competencies enable you to collect that information more accurately.
Choose Yourself consists of the competencies of Apply Consequential Thinking, Navigate Emotions, Engage Intrinsic Motivation, and Exercise Optimism. This pursuit is about doing what you mean to do. Instead of reacting "on autopilot," these competencies allow you to respond proactively.
