8 Essential TED Talks For Any Meeting


Managers, leaders, supervisors, etc… are always trying to find ways to motivate their teams. We are constantly asked “do you know someone who speaks on motivation?,” or “Do you have any motivating webinars or inspiring videos?” Well, I’ve researched dozens and dozens of TED Talks and have packaged up a handful of the best “motivating” TED Talks, in my opinion, all right here in this blog post. There are many other motivational videos I could have added to the list, but the ones below not only share awesome ideas and concepts, but the speakers are also good at what they do and are entertaining. This could be a great resource the next time you’re struggling to find a motivational video for your next business meeting.

WARNING:These videos contain information that scientifically proves that people are NOT motivated by money. 😉

DAN PINK: The Puzzle of Motivation

TOM WUJEC: Build a Tower Build a Team

SIMON SINEK: How Great Leaders Inspire Action

SHAWN ACHOR: The Happy Secret to Better Work

Ok, I also stumbled across a few others that are not completely focused on motivation, but were awesome enough I felt I needed to share:

AMY CUDDY: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

NIGEL MARSH: How to Make Work-Life Balance Work 

MEL ROBBINS: How to Stop Screwing Yourself Over

TERRY MOORE: How to Tie Your Shoes

I’m sure there are so many more TED talks or videos that are motivating or inspiring for the workplace, but I only have so many hours for research so PLEASE share what motivates or inspires you by leaving a reply below!
