An Evening for Curious Minds. Theme:Enabling Change
Enable Change should be read as Enable (possible) Improvement. In the pre-recorded TED Talks, the common message is: accept and encourage deviations from the expected. Never blaim people for their "mistakes"! Give them supportive feedback and help, and spend efforts on praising for effort and progress. These TED Talks are about jazz music and about general leadership and management.
The live talks have "plasticity" in common. Capabilities for problem solving and for learning (or progress) have often been regarded as (inherited) components of the personality. Both Dweck and Klingberg have made clear, that improvements of such capabilities are supported by systematic use of appropriate training and feedback. Very essential knowledge for any parent, teacher, leader and human being in general.
