I was honored to get the opportunity to speak at TEDxNormal a couple of months ago and Mr. TED recently released the videos. My segment from this awesome event focused on leadership and how we can improve employee engagement through some not-so-standard practices. It was a totally different experience for me even though I speak for a living and am used to being in front of audiences all the time. I really hope you enjoy the video and please send along any feedback you have. And make sure you check out all of the other great talks that came out of this event here.

Hi Jeff: Really enjoyed your TEDx talk and will use in my classes! I also had the opportunity to do one — on a similar topic. Mine is called Missing the Obvious in Employee Recognition https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWlzc6x5u10
You do the best presentation on Generational material, by the way…thanks for that.
I do think you could reduce the length of your training materials — too many pages. Let me know if I can help!
P.S. Met you once at the Green Business Conference at Lands’ End, WI a while back.
Thanks, Claire! We’ve designed those training materials to be able to handle up to a 4-6 hour training session, since some people have asked us to provide them that much content – but personally I agree with you, shorter training is more likely to keep people engaged the entire time. So just ignore the parts that seem boring to you. 🙂
Congrats on the TED talk! I’ll be sure to watch it soon – and thanks for commenting!
