When my colleague Jacquie Hampton challenged me to come up with my Top Ten TED talks, in response to her recent blog post, I knew it would be difficult to come up with just ten. It took some time but what a good excuse to revisit some old favourites!
Here they are, in no particular order:
Brené Brown - Listening to Shame
Sir Ken Robinson - Do Schools Kill Creativity?
Jill Bolte Taylor - My Stroke of Insight
Susan Cain - The Power of Introverts
Carol Dweck - The Power of Believing that You Can Improve
Chimamanda Adichie - The Danger of a Single Story
Jonathan Fields - Turning Fear Into Fuel (TEDxCMU)
Kristin Neff - The Space Between Self-Esteem and Self Compassion (TEDxCentennialParkWomen)
Richard Chambers - Mindfulness: Defeating Distraction and Amplifying Awareness (TEDxUniMelb)
Glennon Doyle Melton - Lessons from the Mental Hospital (TEDxTraverseCity)
