Have you tried using TED Talks at work? What is your experience?

I had this idea this morning to bring TED into my workplace (see http://www.ted.com/conversations/3928/bring_the_ted_spark_to_your_wo.html). I have actually created our network on the company Yammer group today to share the idea, test it and share feedback.

Have you tried this at your workplace before? What format? What worked? What didn't? Why? I would be very much interested to hear your experience using TED Talks at work.

Consider visiting the above TED Idea post to leave a comment on the TED@[work] concept.

    • Jul 27 2011: Hello Nicolas. It seems easier for a number of people to deny facts that challenge established beliefs or references. I believe it's called resistance to change (change of mind in this case...). I can only suggest to engage in such sharing with people you trust first, people who you know are open-minded, and looking for ways and opportunities to be and do better for themselves and for others. Don't give up! And if these people aren't at work, that's equally fine. The most important thing is to surround yourself with people that are open to new ideas, and willing to share and try them to do good. Thanks for sharing.

        Resistance to change is the good phrase to sum up what said.
        Thank you for your comment and your ideas.
