Spark Change and Inspire Action with TED

TED Talks like The power of vulnerability by Brené Brown or How great leaders inspire action by Simon Sinek, which gave us one of our favorite metaphors, “the golden circle,” have inspired us as individuals with new ideas and perspectives. Global organizations, meanwhile, have leveraged TED Talks to not only motivate their employees, but to drive action and meaningful change. So how do we move from inspiration to action? How can we apply the bold, ambitious ideas shared from the TED stage to our own work? 

Here are three ways to incorporate TED’s courses into your workplace learning initiatives in order to drive organizational change:


A growing library of TED@Work courses covers critical topics such as leadership, collaboration, emotional intelligence, embracing change, and digital transformation. Each interactive course includes an Ideas into Action framework to inspire new ways of working at the individual and team level.

TED Masterclass

With this course, learners can master the art of public speaking and improve communication skills by learning to identify, refine, and deliver ideas so they make an impact. This action-oriented course guides learners through TED’s process as they develop their own TED-style talks.
