10 TED Talks for the Workplace

The workplace has changed dramatically over the last 50 years. Jobs require more and more technology skills and less and less hard labor. Telecommuting has spread out workforces. Individuals are living and working longer than ever and the workplace is a multigenerational place of business and interaction. Still, with all this change afoot, we are still asking similar questions: How do we do work that is meaningful? How do we learn to work alongside one another? How do we foster creative energy in what we do? How do we effectively communicate with one another? How do we find a work/ life balance?
