Since posting my first TEDnesday post last week, I’ve kept an eye out for TED talks others have shared and have picked a two favorites to share here.I hope you’ll join me in celebrating leadership, innovation, and discovery. My goal is to find videos that elicit responses, conversations, and critical thinking.
Hanna Brencher: Love Letters to Strangers
Do you want to see a college student make a difference? Watch Hannah Brencher’s talk of transitioning beyond Social Media and into handwritten letter through The World Needs More Love Letters. I love her emphasis of taking our feelings, experiences, and love offline and on paper.
This was one of the first TED talks I’d ever seen, and still the most powerful. I first watched a clip from it at the National Leadership Symposium in 2009 and was instantly moved by it. I’ve always known myself as a reader and story lover, but his talk began a transition in the way I thought about storytelling, power, and privilege.
I would love to hear your reactions to these videos and your recommendations on what to watch in the next week.
