Why Great Ideas Get Rejected: David Burkus at TEDxOU – TedXtalks youtube seminars
the idea girl says
i’m so glad ashley and tina told me aoubt ted x talks videos, they are very helpful.
this week’s studies are on rejection, self confidence and self esteem for me to learn from
as a writer it’s something I have to deal with when I submit a manuscript to a literary agent (queries etc)
as a blogger it’s dealing with criticism from people
as a person it’s dealing with people not liking some of my ideas, or people that no longer talk to me, after giving them ideas… (that one I still fail to understand – the latter).

Have you ever debuted an exciting new idea to the world only to receive a lukewarm or even highly critical response? Well, get used to it. Mounting evidence shows that we all possess an inherent bias against creativity. David Burkus shares the good news that there actually is something we can do about it.
David Burkus is Assistant Professor of Management at Oral Roberts University where he teaches courses on creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship and organizational behavior. He is the founder and editor of LDRLB, an online think tank that shares insights from research on leadership, innovation, and strategy. He is the author of the forthcoming book Myths of Creativity to be published in Fall 2013.
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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
