  1. EP17-Wrestling the Dragon - Moving Through Difficult Experiences with David Drake

     Why does narrative and story ignite the power of the human spirit? How do you move through a difficult experience in life or work? Why is letting go of control so difficult?

  2. Margaret Heffernan: Why it’s time to forget the pecking order at work

    Organizations are often run according to “the superchicken model,” where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn’t what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results.

  3. TEDxMerseyside - Caitlin Walker - Clean Questions and Metaphor Models

    Caitlin graduated in Linguistics at the School of Oriental and African Studies and did four years post graduate research in Strategies for Lexical access including fieldwork in Ghana. She has since developed her linguistic and non-verbal modelling skills from small scale group development to whole scale organisational culture change programmes addressing diversity, conflict, leadership, managing mergers and creating learning organizations. She is passionate about trusting in the wisdom of groups.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
