My TEDx Talk: The Power of Authenticity

97June 6, 2013

I recently gave a TEDx talk on The Power of Authenticity. I wanted to share the video of the talk with you in case you haven’t seen it yet, for two main reasons. First of all, because I think you’ll enjoy it and get some good stuff out of it. And, second of all, because if you feel moved to do so, I’d be honored and grateful if you shared it with others… via email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. 🙂

The talk is under 20 minutes long (in standard TED format) and focuses on the importance of being authentic. I share some stories, ideas, and perspectives about what makes it challenging for us to be authentic, some important distinctions about aspects of authenticity, and what becomes available for us, others, and the groups we belong to when we’re willing to be real in a courageous and even vulnerable way.

The more this video gets shared, the more people will see it and be touched by it, the more it will expand this important conversation about authenticity, and the more opportunities it will create for me to share this essential message (and others) with people who can benefit from it. Who knows, maybe it will end up going viral and/or get picked up on, either of which would be wonderful and fun!
