TEDsters on Living: Sheena Iyengar, Shawn Achor, and Sarah Kay

Sheena Iyengar: How to make choosing easier

As public speaking teachers, we often talk abou the importance of eye contact. Many of us avoid eye contact because we worry about judgment and dislike being the center of attention. Sheena Iyengar develops presentations are dynamic, engaging, and interactive–she also happens to be blind. In this talk that features beautifully unified visuals, Iyengar explores the problem of choice and choice overload–this talk serves as an interesting counterpoint to Malcolm Gladwell’s spaghetti sauce talk.

Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

Employers and companies have begun infusing play into the workspace through the use of flexible schedules, bean bag chairs, and desk decorating projects. But what is the real secret to happiness at work? What is it that actually leads to blissful productivity, creativity, and work beyond the average? Achor relays the true power play can have on creativity, work, and happiness with delightful humor, impeccable pacing, and a sense of childlike wonder and play that truly bring his message to life.

Sarah Kay: How many lives can you live?

I was first introduced to Sarah Kay during a previous iteration of the TED analysis through her first TED talk, “If I should have a daughter…”. In this inspiring TEDxEast talk, Kay takes us through multiple lives through spoken poetry. Kay uses the word and the dynamic delivery of that word to bring the experiences of the others in her mind to life.
