The top TED talks every woman should watch
Updated: May 10, 2022
I love a good TED Talk! They are great for inspiration on a down day. Whether you want to be entertained, enlightened, uplifted, or informed, there is a TED talk to fit the bill.
This is my list of the Top 5 TED talks every women should have on her favourites:
1. Amy Cuddy: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are
What Amy says makes perfect sense. She shares how body language affects not only how other people see you, but even how you see yourself. Listen to her tips to improve your confidence in any situation.
2. Brené Brown: The Power of Vulnerability
This is one of the first TED talks I ever watched, and it still sticks with me. Brene really digs down into why it’s so important to be open, vulnerable and…more trusting of ourselves. Both in personal and professional life, being more open can help us connect with people on a much deeper level and can also help us understand ourselves even better.
3. Mel Robbins: How to Stop Screwing Yourself Over
If you're in need of a shake up, watch this. Mel's 'no nonsense' approach is bound to get you into action and going after what you really want. She'll motivate you to get out of your comfort zone and become the change you want to see.
4. Sheryl Sandberg: Why We Have Too Few Women Leaders
This is a great one to get you inspired. Cheryl talks factually about the many ways that we often inhibit ourselves, what we can do as well as what changes we can influence to bring greater equality in work and life.
5. Cameron Russell: Looks Aren’t Everything. Believe Me, I’m A Model
Cameron shares a refreshingly honest perspective on the power and the illusion of image - reminding us that what we see on camera and in magazines are constructions … not reality.
Beauty is skin deep, happiness starts within.
