Ted Talks – when looking for Leadership Inspiration

I just love watching these 20 minutes or less inspiration pearls,
they always get me surprised and motivates,
some are funny,
some are very sad,
some are amazing,
but always they leave me with some thoughts and emotions.

Here are a few I liked the most:

Elizabeth Gilbert on nurturing creativity

About this talk:

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses —
and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius.
It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.

About Elizabeth Gilbert:

The author of Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert has thought long and hard about some large topics.
Her next fascination: genius, and how we ruin it.

Simon Sinek: How great leaders inspire action

About this talk:

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership all starting with a golden circle
and the question “Why?” His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers —
and as a counterpoint Tivo, which (until a recent court victory that tripled its stock price) appeared to be struggling.

About Simon Sinek:

In 2009, Simon Sinek released the book “Start With Why” — a synopsis of the theory he has begun
using to teach others how to become effective leaders and inspire change
