You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our February edition — themed Give or Take? — is curated by TEDxTheHague:
"Finger-pointing is easy. Armored with blame, we can condemn, accuse and hate others with smug moral superiority. Compassion, on the other hand, makes blame disappear. But why is compassion so hard? And what can we do to become more considerate and less self-serving?"
We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
Brené Brown on Blame
You are probably a bit of a blamer - most of us are. But why should we give it up? In this witty RSA Short, Brené Brown considers why we blame others, how it sabotages our relationships, and why we desperately need to move beyond this toxic behaviour.
Daniel Goleman: Why aren't we more compassionate?
Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence," asks why we aren't more compassionate more of the time.
Adam Grant: Are you a giver or a taker?
In every workplace, there are three basic kinds of people: givers, takers and matchers. Organizational psychologist Adam Grant breaks down these personalities and offers simple strategies to promote a culture of generosity and keep self-serving employees from taking more than their share.
RSVP if you want to attend
We hope this theme will resonate with you, awaken your curiosity and make you decide to attend TEDxTheHague. To stimulate conversation, we admit up to 25 guests. If you want to be put on our final guest list, please RSVP. First-come, first-served!
