Need a great short video to start a meeting or workshop? I’ve seen or used all of these and still get a kick out of watching them. If you have other videos, please leave a comment or find me at Twitter and I’ll put them in another post.
[Since I originally posted this, I’ve added several other videos in another post. Find those here.]
(If YouTube is blocked at your meeting site, or you are worried about a slow internet connection, download these videos by using www.savevid.com.)
Introducing the book: This clip is great for breaking the ice when talking about change or about tech issues.
Everything’s amazing and no one’s happy: Louis CK talks about how people aren’t necessarily appreciative of all that we have in the world. Great lesson for just feeling satisfied with the present.
German Coast Guard: Love this one for making a point about good communication.
Leadership lessons from dancing guy: This is a perfect way to talk about leaders and the importance of first followers. Your staff will be talking about “lone nuts” for a long time.
Stuck on an escalator: Perfect to use when getting ready to try and solve a problem that is yours alone to fix.
Thanks to @mwaiksnis for the reminder on Seinfeld teaching history.
