I am sure you are familiar with TED Talks and you probably saw quite a number already. Today I chose to highlight two talks that had a significant influence on me and that triggered some changes in the way I namely conduct my business.
Both talks help to empower you to do what feels right, for yourself and for others. They helped me to raise my voice, at several occasion, and to reframe the message I wanted to convey, in a way that was more accessible for my audience – in that specific case, colleagues and managers.
The first one is dedicated to the ability to speak up. Also I am a naturally outgoing person, I used to feel some difficulty to voice things that were directly concerning me as an individual. This talk helped me to build a frame to simplify the process and build up the message that is both authentic and efficient.
The second one tackles the question of your work’s value. That’s indeed a key question, regardless of your job and your industry. Thanks to this talk I was able to identify that I was contributing personally much more to the development of my business activity compared to what I traditionally imagined. By refraining this value, it unlock healthy discussions with my managers and open the way to some carrier progression.
I leave you with the two talks, please share you feedbacks in the comments or directly on Twitter!
