Ted Talks X

The world needs you to be selfish! | Jennifer Ehrmantraut | TEDxRPLCentralLibrary

Written by rts007

In the increasingly disconnected, busy and demanding world, Jennifer asks for everyone to discover the benefits that come from being selfish. In her talk, she talks about the value of taking time to connect with who you are and to find your joy each day. She tells her personal stories about the costs she experienced of giving too much and how she discovered the value of being selfish.

Jennifer is edgy, funny, and a little sweary. With over 20 years of tell-it-like-it-is leadership in public and private organizations, she climbed the corporate ladder to discover her passion for coaching and leadership development. She is a professional accountant by trade and inspires intentional joy by passion. Her biggest lesson has been that when we lose the connection to ourselves then we can no longer connect with others. In finding her connection to herself again, Jennifer is redefining what success looks like through her company, Intentional You. There, she challenges individuals to question their stories, their capabilities, and their judgements of themselves, to give them the platform to jump beyond what they thought was possible.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
