About a year ago, I was introduced to TED Talks. TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. TED's annual conferences in Long Beach, California and Oxford, England bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).
New TED Talks are made available each week. You can visit TED yourself, or view the videos you find posted here each week. Sometimes I will try to post videos that seem to build on a theme. Other times I will post just a single talk. This week I have posted a TED Talk that uses music to give us a new way to think about leadership.
In Itay Talgam: Lead like the great conductors illustrates effective leadership using examples of orchestra conductors. I hope you enjoy this TED Talk and will take a moment to post your reactions to the video.
