One of the highlight of attending the TED conference this past year was seeing Benjamin Zander in action. He's not only a world-class speaker on leadership and and the co-author of one of my favourite books, The Art of Possibility (along with Rosamund Stone Zander), but he is also the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic.
Benjamin Zander's TED Talk brought the crowd to their feet (eyes shining). It's an amazing speech on power of passion, possibility and inspiration.
You would be remised if you didn't spend the next twenty minutes watching this video: TED Talks - Benjamin Zander - Classical Music With Shining Eyes.
I hope it changed your world like it changed mine.
