The United Nations declared November 16 as the International Day for Tolerance. Talents for Tolerance is an initiative by Six Seconds to encourage us to collaborate on sharing emotional intelligence — and adding our voices to call for a more compassionate, tolerant, and just world.

All around the world the week of November 14-20 volunteers are presenting workshops on tolerance and emotional intelligence, and offering a free Six Seconds Brain Talents Profile for participants. Workshops will take place in churches, mosques, schools, community centers, living rooms, and universities; anywhere people gather in their town.

What is a Brain Talents Profile?


Each of us has strengths and talents we come by naturally or have cultivated over time. The 18 “Brain Apps” describe unique, powerful capabilities to create performance and positive change. Using the metaphor that the brain is like a smart phone and contains many useful “apps”, this assessment produces a list of your brain’s most prominent talents. These include talents such as connection, data mining, design, problem solving, critical thinking, emotional insight and collaboration. www.6seconds.org/brain
