Conversations that Matter
As an NPR host and journalist, Celeste Headlee has interviewed hundreds of people from all walks of life. Through her work, she has learned the true power of conversation and its ability to both bridge gaps or deepen wounds. In a time when conversations are often minimized to a few words in a text message and lack of meaningful communication and conversation abounds, Celeste sheds a much-needed light on the lost and essential art of conversation. Celeste’s TEDx Talk, “10 ways to have a better conversation,” was listed as one of the most watched TED Talks in 2016 by CNBC and named the #1 must-watch TED Talk by Glassdoor with 12.5 million total views to date.
