  1. Ryan Holiday: “Ego is the Enemy” | Talks at Google

    Ryan Holiday joins Talks at Google to share lessons from his newest book "Ego is the Enemy"

    ABOUT THE BOOK

    Many of us insist the main impediment to a full, successful life is the outside world. In fact, the most common enemy lies within: our ego. Early in our careers, it impedes learning and the cultivation of talent. With success, it can blind us to our faults and sow future problems. In failure, it magnifies each blow and makes recovery more difficult. At every stage, ego holds us back.

    Ego Is the Enemy draws on a vast array of stories and examples, from literature to philosophy to history. We meet fascinating figures such as George Marshall, Jackie Robinson, Katharine Graham, Bill Belichick, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who all reached the highest levels of power and success by conquering their own egos. Their strategies and tactics can be ours as well.

    In an era that glorifies social media, reality TV, and other forms of shameless self-promotion, the battle against ego must be fought on many fronts. Armed with the lessons in this book, as Holiday writes, “you will be less invested in the story you tell about your own specialness, and as a result, you will be liberated to accomplish the world-changing work you’ve set out to achieve.”

  6. Ricardo Semler, founder of the Lumiar School - WISE 2015 Special Address

    Known around the globe for his innovative, employee-centric management style, Ricardo Semler is a true visionary who advises businesses on how to lead and manage. Founder of the Lumiar Schools, Semler has applied his world vision to the field of education.

    Letting children determine what is interesting and getting the most out of every topic and project - this is the focus of the Lumiar Schools. For example, from one project on the World Cup, the school calls in teachers or "masters" of geometry, physics, history, geography and more! Putting children at the heart of their own education is much like how he democratised management practices at his Brazilian firm Semco.

    Watch as he explains his passion for cross-sectional learning as a way to educate tomorrow’s citizens.

  7. Elder Christofferson Speaks to Latin Journalists (IAPA) on Protecting Free Speech

    “Safety does not come from stifling speech, but from giving it a chance to breathe,” said Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to a group of about 300 Latin journalists participating in the 73rd Annual Assembly of the Inter American Press Association (IAPA) in Salt Lake City.

    “We applaud the efforts of IAPA to defend and promote freedom of press and expression throughout the Americas,” said Elder Christofferson in his remarks to the media gathered Saturday night, October 28, 2017, at the Conference Center Theater on Temple Square in Salt Lake City. “So many of the blessings of life and the prosperity of society rest on these freedoms.”

    Elder Christofferson delivered the speech in Spanish (see the Spanish and English transcripts), a language he first learned as a 19-year-old Mormon missionary serving in Argentina. “There is a special place in my heart for the people of Mexico and Central and South America.” He later lived in Mexico City with his family while directing Church operations in Mexico.

    “Not everything that comes from our pens or our mouths will be useful, but when freedom is discouraged nothing good will come out of them either. To get the sublime, sometimes we have to put up with a little of the ridicul…

  8. Ricardo Semler: Radical wisdom for a company, a school, a life

    What if your job didn’t control your life? Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to). It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about. Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?
