The power of humour and stories to communicate


I love this TEDx talk by Shawn Anchor for a few reasons. Firstly, Shawn’s presentation style. He's got a speedy pace, and uses humour and stories that connect with the audience. Not a second is lost, and you can't help but tune in.

The message is interesting too: As the Ted blurb says:

“We believe we should work hard in order to be happy, but could we be thinking about things backwards? In this fast-moving and very funny talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that, actually, happiness inspires us to be more productive.”

I hope you enjoy it too.
