TED Talks That Will Help You Further Your Career

Written by

Armada Group TED Talks

The online TED Talks are among the best places to hear from top experts in every field. You can keep up with advances in every field of study, and get advice about how to live your best life. Here are some of the best TED talks to help you get further in your career.

1. If you're working in technology, you're undoubtedly smart. But a high IQ isn't enough to make you successful. Listen to Angela Lee Duckworth's talk about the power of grit and determination.

2. If you want to get hired — or to hire the best talent — you need to understand how the job market really works. Wingham Rowan discusses how technology can support flexible hiring.

3. The job you're doing today may not be around tomorrow. Artificial intelligence, droids, and robots mean machines can do more and more of the work that currently requires people. Where will there still be jobs? Listen to Andrew McAfee to find out.

4. For most people, work takes at least 40 hours per week. That's more time than we spend on anything else, except maybe sleeping. Learn how to find meaning in your work in this talk by Dan Ariely.

5. You'll enjoy your time at the office more if you adapt principles of simple living to the workplace. Learn six rules for simplifying work in a talk by Yves Morieux.

6. The best workplaces are collaborative, not command-driven, but that doesn't mean you can't learn about leadership from a general. Hear what Stanley McChrystal has to say about effective leadership.

7. While building your career is important, so is enjoying the rest of your life. Nigel Marsh's talk will help you take control and find the balance between working and living.
