In a previous post, I shared a list of TED Talks that my team and I watched together over the course of the year. I started this as a way for us to connect and hopefully spur some thought-provoking conversations about bigger-picture items that extended beyond our functional areas. We did this over a brown bag lunch, and each person had a designated month to choose the TED Talk and facilitate our discussion.
Here is the complete list of TED Talks that we watched, as selected by staff members, during our second year of doing this.
- Tim Brown: Tales of creativity and play
- Bill Gates: Teachers need real feedback
- Dan Gilbert: Why we make bad decisions
- Renny Gleeson: 404, the story of a page not found
- Seth Godin: Stop stealing dreams
- Seth Godin: This is broken
- Peter Kageyama: For the love of cities
- Salman Khan: Let’s use video to reinvent education
- Kid President: I think we all need a pep talk
- Hyeonseo Lee: Escape from North Korea
- Nilofer Merchant: Got a meeting? Take a walk
- Deb Roy: The birth of a word
- Sheryl Sandberg: Why we have too few women leaders
- Tom Thum: The orchestra in my mouth
