TED is Tops When It Comes to Inspiration

Kevin King —  February 3, 2016 — Leave a comment

During the dark gloomy winter months in the Midwest, I often need to seek out a dose of inspiration to keep my innovative juices bubbling. No website has served me better than TED to provide a much needed spark. The talks given by the experts featured in the hundreds of TED videos have not only acted as a catalyst to make me a better innovator, but have also become powerful tools in my mission to inspire innovation. A recent online article on Inc. listed nine TED Talks leaders can use to kickstart creativity that has become a valuable resource when I am stuck in a rut. Two of the videos on the list are ones I regularly use when presenting on innovation and leadership!

Bookmark this list to use for the times you need a kickstart.
