Get your free Celebrating Talents for Tolerance kit with:

1. Invitation to an interactive, insightful hour-long workshop

All we ask you to do in return is share back a photo+comment about the experience (in one of our social media groups).

Why Talents for Tolerance?

We live in a world emphasizing differences — people feel increasingly stressed and disconnected. It’s time to change this trend and build an understanding that “we’re all in the this together.” One way is by valuing individual strengths — recognizing that people can be GREAT in many different ways, and different doesn’t mean bad. The BRAIN TALENT PROFILE is a simple, powerful way to recognize a person’s unique capabilities.


The United Nations declared November 16 as the International Day for Tolerance.  Here’s what UNESCO says about tolerance — a virtue that will benefit every person, a home, school, and work:

Along with outright injustice and violence, discrimination and marginalization are common forms of intolerance. Education for tolerance should aim at countering influences that lead to fear and exclusion of others, and should help young people develop capacities for independent judgement, critical thinking and ethical reasoning.

What does it take to create positive change in the world? We studied thousands of comments about changemakers and leaders, and distilled 18 essential capabilities such as collaboration and vision (here’s more about the research).

Talents for Tolerance is a way for us to collaborate on sharing emotional intelligence — and adding our voices to call for a more compassionate, tolerant, and just world.

About the Talents for Tolerance Workshop

Just sign up on this form and we’ll email you the kit by Nov 1. (Sorry, event is now past)

What’s the workshop about?

What are your unique Brain Talents? Find out in the fun, powerful hour of learning about our unique strengths. You’ll get a free assessment, your Brain Talent Profile, and learn about:

  • Key capabilities to create positive change
  • The International Day of Tolerance
  • How we can each use our talents to support ourselves AND others
  • Ways we are all similar and different – and the value of that
  • Emotional intelligence as a fuel for positive change


Who should come to the workshop?

The speaker notes in the workshop are written to be adaptable to adults or youth.

It is perfect for a Lunch and Learn session in the office — or a church/temple/mosque get-together — or a class in school (ages 7-18).

You can even hold Talents for Tolerance with three friends around your kitchen table.


Who can sign up to hold a workshop?

You! Everyone’s invited. You don’t need special training – if you’re capable of bringing a group together and encouraging people to talk to one another, you’re in. If in doubt, sign up, get the kit, and then you can decide.


When can I do this?

The Celebrating Talents for Tolerance event is Nov 14-20 — the codes for the free assessments will work during this period only.


How can I get help?

Our facilitators will be on Six Seconds’ Facebook Page the week before the event to answer questions and help you prepare.

Additional Q&A about the Workshop
What’s in the Celebrating Talents for Tolerance workshop?
We’ll send a kit with instructions, slides, and codes for your people to take the Brain Talent Profile. The workshop has a few activities to foster discussions. Topics include…
  • What is tolerance?
  • Does it matter to us?
  • What talents do we need in order to increase tolerance (if we want to)?
  • How can we work better together with our unique talents?
Is this online?
The workshop is written for in-person delivery, but you can adapt it to hold online. Several others are doing so, and we’ll make a virtual intro so those who are holding it online can collaborate.
Who comes to the workshop?
It’s up to you. If you’re holding a workshop, you pick when and where and who. We’ll provide you instructions and the code for the assessments.
We’ll share a youth version (8-18) and an adult version of the workshop.
Can I hold more than one workshop?
Absolutely yes. The more the merrier.
When can I have the workshop materials? 
In about 1 week we’ll share the instructions and slides with all who’ve signed up. 
Can I see the workshop before signing up?
We suggest you “tentatively sign up” so you get the materials. Then decide if it’s a good fit (on the signup, you can say you’re reaching just 1 person. Then if you decide to reach more, let us know and we’ll revise your count).
If I’m not a “facilitator” or “teacher” can I still do this?
Yes! Just for example, you could have 4 people in your “workshop” held around your kitchen table. Or you could have a few people from your office join together for a lunch conversation.
Can I do the workshop in my own language?
Yes. However, the Brain Talent Profile is currently available only in some languages.
For Adults: English, Italian, Chinese, Arabic
For Youth: English, Italian, Arabic
The assessment is in 15 languages, and soon we’ll have the Talent Profile in more.
