TED Circles #5 - Lead with Curiosity (Sep 30th 2020)

The way we think about work is broken. Yearly Gallup surveys consistently show enormously high disengagement rates among industries and countries. The truth is that, although encouraging advances are arising, we are doing pretty badly at fostering general employee wellbeing. After all work makes people, work transforms people so it is us who must design what kind of work will make next generations.

The event's theme is "Learning That Matters". TEDxOtemachiED features learners, educators, innovators from across disciplines who will speak to a variety of issues regarding Education - one of the most important, powerful systems of organized human life. We will explore ideas, ranging from personal strategies for lifelong pursuit of knowledge to curriculum and pedagogical innovation, from latest trends in Ed-tech to the next generations of learning space design, from Education for Sustainability to the question of envisioning graduates of the future. Faced with unforeseeable changes that the future brings, opportunities and crisis alike, it’s high time we ask: What are truly worth educating for?

TEDxLive event is a global initiative to make the TED conference more open, more global, and its impact more immediate. Communities around the world can engage with, as well as build on, the TED Conference experience as it happens live. At TEDxOtemachiLive, we are to watch the official TED Conference through a webcast, then listen to live speakers whose powerful ideas will intellectually stimulate, emotionally connect, and genuinely inspire.

The theme of TED2019 is "Bigger than us". Together let's explore the endless possibilities of tantalizing technology, compassionate human systems & important values that drive a more sustainable future, shed light on our search for deeper meaning.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
