FJMC Leadership TED Talks

For many years, at Biennial Conventions and the annual Leadership Development Institute, FJMC leaders on both the regional and international level, have provided outstanding presentations about skills for becoming a more effective and better leader.  A new initiative, begun at Convention 2019, was to tape these talks, and make them available online.  And planning for the future, we will be capturing more of these important these important leadership topics.  They are now provided for use and viewing by both regional and club leadership.  [Note:  TED 'talks' was conceived by Richard Saul Wurman in February 1984[5] as a conference; it has been held annually since 1990.[6] TED's early emphasis was on technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins. It has since broadened its perspective to include talks on many scientific, cultural, political, and academic topics. from Wikipedia] .
