This week, TEDx University of Nevada published Liz Wiseman's TED Talk: "Living and Working With Child-Like Wonder." Originally filmed on January 23rd, 2015, this inspirational video showcases Liz Wiseman as she shares her personal story of re-discovery. 

Has the world become too familiar to you? Do you feel stuck? How does what we know get in the way of what we don't know? 

It's difficult to let go of what we know and embrace the unknown. Let Liz Wiseman help you recapture that "Child-Like Wonder" in your job, by focusing on climbing new learning curves instead of only climbing up the career ladder.
