We believe that the world would be a better place if we practiced Emotional Intelligence
Imagine the power of connectedness underpinned by these key principles –Know Yourself, Choose Yourself, Give Yourself. Then imagine you have been part of creating it. That is why we do this. We love it. It’s the reason we were put on earth. And it’s for that very reason, we have aligned to the global organization -Six Seconds. They are a community of changemakers contributing to a world of insight, connection, and purpose. Six Seconds have a target to get 1 billion people practicing the skills of emotional intelligence (EQ). They research and share scientific, global and transformational tools & methods to support that goal. We choose to use their tools to strengthen our business processes.
With offices and representatives in 25 countries and members in 167 countries, they have a global reach.
our community work
As a volunteer Network Leader for Six Seconds, Carey is working to build a community of people committed to practicing Emotional Intelligence in East London. She runs quarterly EQ Cafes. The aim is to develop and support a network of people who want to practice Emotional Intelligence. This is part of the non-profit organization Six Second’s mission of increasing insight, connection and purpose by engaging people to practice together in EQ Cafes. The sessions are quarterly, open to the public and free.
Business Chamber –Employee Relations Forum
As an active member of the Business Chamber, Carey represents business on the HRD Council –a provincial task force set up by the premier to make strategic decisions around skills for the economy. She serves on the Employee Relations forum driving projects to build the business community. The Corporate Social Investment project and the Organisational Development database are two such examples.
Rotary Leadership Programme
As a Rotarian with the Rotary Club of Gately, Carey has been instrumental in establishing a leadership programme called Find Your Voice for young adults. The programme aims to develop active and ethical leaders who can meet the current and future challenges. Participants experience personal growth, develop confidence and resilience, practice real-life leadership, learn about ethics and integrity, and build a network of mentors, facilitators and peers -finding their voices as leaders in groups of diverse backgrounds as well as status. This is an example of Carey’s passion for building community and leaders that flows into her not for profit space.
