Phil Hansen: The art of the imperfect

4 11 2012

Watch “Phil Hansen: The art of the imperfect” Video at TED2013 #TEDTalentSearch.

Seize the limitation!

If you’ve been a regular reader you’ll know that I was part of a training team this weekend. One of the attendees was blind through complications with diabetes. Though I was scheduled to deliver a session on “diversity” anyway, it was a great “teaching moment” as we really did have to tweak a couple of our sessions during the weekend to be embracing of his limitations (more audio/kinesthetic than visual teaching; making sure we read out all the slides rather than just talking around them).

This TED talk shows how Phil Hansen became dramatically more diverse in his output through what initially seemed a severe limitation. Enjoy!
