Happy New Year all!

I've just been listening to another TED video. I have shared one with some of you before. TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. This one is about Learning from Leadership's "missing manual".

I was listening to it from several perspectives:
1. to learn about leadership
2. to learn how story telling might be used to create some principles for better leadership, and
3. whether this was a place to share our story.

You can imagine my surprise and pleasure when one of the three examples of leadership was someone we know, someone within our community!

What did I learn? This format of someone else telling the story can be just as effective as the person with the initial experience, and that story teller can draw some common principles together. I believe we should offer TED some speakers to give talks as our Idea is Worth Spreading. These talks should not be about us but rather about people who have inspired us with their building of AIDS Competence. What do you think?

I subscribe to ted talks and download the video versions of the talks every often...just downloaded and listened to the said video yesterday! I must say that the ideas therein (and in TED) are most useful and would encourage members to consider bookmarking the TED.com site. Geoff's proposal of this network suggesting some wonderfully great guys on this site to appear on TED is great. Cheers from Kenya, Madiang'.

Dear Geoff,

Best wishes for 2010.

Thanks for sharing this video with us. I was delighted to see the person whom I admire and appreciate ( I too won't reveal the identify of this friend of ours!). I especially liked the story about dream of young women which was shared with me a few months ago and I wanted to do a story on Ning.

Geoff, I think your idea is wonderful and we can explore several forums to do it.



PS: This was really a nice new year's present:-)

Hi Geoff,

What a powerful talk. What a surprise to see our dear friend :-) (I won't say who it is to keep the surprise for others ;-) ) This person definitely deserves to be talked about because so inspiring.

I find this video powerful because she speaks with her heart, with emotion. At the same time it is powerful because she is sharing stories from leaders and communities. "They changed their vision of the world. They looked outside and then changed inside."

We definitely have a story to tell. A story worth spreading. 'We' here is not only the secretariat of the Constellation but especially the champion facilitators and communities. What would be a good strategy?

Thank you for sharing!
