In this humorous and thought-provoking talk at TEDxBellevue, Mike talks about “The Power of Appreciation.” As Mike discusses, there is an important distinction between “recognition” and “appreciation.” Leaders, teams, organizations, and individuals who understand this distinction can have much more impact, meaning, and productivity in their lives and with the people around them. He also discusses important research in the field of positive psychology that exemplifies the importance of appreciation.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged and today covers almost all topics â€” from science to business to global issues â€” in more than 100 languages.Â Â The group watches a TED Talk and then discusses the ideas raised in the presentation.
