Have a Meeting? Take a Walk -TedTuesdays

This week’s Ted Talk Tuesday is on a short talk that could bring some needed transformation to your business meetings. The idea could actually be used for English classes too. I USED TO do what the speaker in this Ted Talk recommends with my students back in Brazil. And now with technology it could be done anywhere, anytime!

So summarizing here, Nilofer Merchant suggests a small idea that just might have a big impact on your life and health: Next time you have a one-on-one meeting, make it into a “walking meeting” — and let ideas flow while you walk and talk.

Listen to this episode of the Feel Good English podcast and learn a big idea, and some new English.


The Main Points
  • This generation sits way too much, and the negative health effects could be compared to smoking cigarettes.
  • We need to figure out ways to solve conflicting problems together in order to solve big problems.
  • Walking while doing business can “kill two birds with one stone”
