I am a huge fan of the Ted and TedX speaker programs and spend time veiwing them most days. The knowledge I gain has helped me gain greater awareness of many areas I previously had little knowledge on. Their programs are awesome.

I will be sharing some of the great ones that I have seen that I believe will add some great value to you.

The first one I am Sharing is “10 Ways to Have a Better COnversation”

When your job hinges on how well you talk to people, you learn a lot about how to have conversations — and that most of us don’t converse very well. Celeste Headlee has worked as a radio host for decades, and she knows the ingredients of a great conversation: Honesty, brevity, clarity and a healthy amount of listening. In this insightful talk, she shares 10 useful rules for having better conversations. “Go out, talk to people, listen to people,” she says. “And, most importantly, be prepared to be amazed.”

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.
