What if you could energize your brain? Brady Wilson discusses the chemistry of connection and motivation. Brady Wilson is, undisputedly, the embodiment of focused energy. As co-founder of Juice Inc., Brady’s vision is to create a world where businesses pulsate with creative energy. For 20 years, he has inspired countless companies including American Express, BMO, BMO Harris, Loblaw, PHH, The Co-operators, Yum! Brands Canada and some of the world’s largest Fortune 500 companies, to find the courage to: ​ consider the possibilities beyond traditional human resources strategies; unlock the latent physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy within their organizations; and harness employees’ potential to get them to the point of “A.B.C.D.” (going Above and Beyond the Call of Duty). ​ Brady is the author of four books dedicated to improving employee performance and business results: Juice: The Power of Conversation, Love at Work, Finding the Sticking Point and his most recent book Beyond Engagement. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

This guy was all over the place! I didn't learn "how to do" anything in this talk. He talked about the power of engaging conversations? His stories were really distracting and poorly focused. I thought his use of "depleted brain" was erroneous and shouldn't be in the title.

So people who are totally burned out from too much work just need more work given to them to feel better? LoL!

Somewhere between trauma from witnessing violence to needing challenges and having energy I got lost. What's the point of this? I was folding laundry too, but I've listened to some good talks that still keep my attention and understanding while cleaning

For sure! My friend drpleated me when i told her my joy. She dumped some judgements on it. Our friendship hasnt been the same since. I tried to explain to her, but her apology was an “Im sorry but” and she tried to shift the blame. Its so weird when people do not partner in your joy or pain. I myself need to get a bit better here.

I can agree the video doesnt give quite the answer. I think the advice is more towards people who think someone is not feeling where he belongs/exhausted . So what they could do is reach out to that person and help. 11:11 Belogning, meaning, security, significance, freedom.. Give a person sense of direction which can open the world to that person. And eventually as he starts to catch up with all these things above he's going to live the best times of his life and be happy and successful

In doing the things that's meanningful for us in the environment that accept us, challenges us which we believe will eventually lead us to the vision, we become energized each step forward.

Having low energy is always the worst, but fatigue is a whole other story:/ If you're often asking yourself why youre so tired maybe drop by my channel? I made a video in the hopes of helping people find answers when they have none or when nothing is working. <3
gary hynes (1 month ago)
I've been thinking a lot about this lately, it's great to hear someone explain it so well. I started college and moved to the city 4 months ago, I feel engaged but exhausted, dedicated but depleted. I will definitely be reflecting on this and finding out what matters most to me going forward.
Thanks Brady Wilson if you considered the dental scene TBSE

Looking at the comments before I watched and wasn't sure if I should watch ... but I found it to be perfectly clear and concise. He talked about exactly what we need to 'fix' our exhausted brains. However this is specific to the workplace - which is exactly what I needed personally; thank you!

Jay Em (19 days ago)
Thanks for this talk. If the talk does not make sense to anyone, it maybe just a matter of time or maybe they are already practicing it unawares. It could be worth a second or third replay to get the message. But if you want to improve relationships or your communication, whether family or colleague wise or with just anyone you meet up with a possible situation underneath, this has good and wise tips! It is all about being concerned about, and of the OTHER person's interest with the powerful questions: 1) What is important to you? 2) Is there something you can do about it? 3) What would be it be like if..? and.. 4) not putting the other person in your shoes (projecting your own experiences, wants, and beliefs to the person) With sincerity and empathy, these are some of the questions that speak to the heart of the person and can bring out all the energizing chemicals to the depleted brain and make it motivated again to positivity. I encourage everyone to go back to this video when discouraged or when trying to improve your approach to a seemingly hopeless or tiresome discourse whether for personal relationships or productivity at work. It all boils down to building rapport and relationships.

I never post on videos. What the heck was this guy’s speech about!!??? If you read this, save ourself some time and skip on to something else. So disappointing listening to these videos with the expectation of some...any knowledge transfer, only to be told a story with little to no connection to the topic.
Pedro Rodriguez (3 months ago)
The exhausted brain gets fixed by yourself with serotonin, dopamine or oxytocin which are drugs we naturally carry, and produce. You just need to learn how to trigger them for yourself or for others.

Oxitocin is produced when we train together....like karate for example, line dancing works. Doesn't matter what it is

My first boss was so difficult, so arrogant, so scary to me that he made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end when he said my name. I used to fantasize about throwing him out of the ninth story window and watching him go splat on the pavement below. Not joking. I ended up having a nervous breakdown and had to eventually quit. What does this mean in terms of the chemicals he was drawing out of my brain?

Pretty interesting guy, I'd like to chat with him and pick his brain a bit
El Sandstorm (4 months ago)
Yes. There's a reason why I started nosebleed when I told my boss "I'm calling sick today" and because I'm on work training practice , I decide whenever I come to work and not, but my boss didn't listen to my needs and to what was important to me, and I was not expressing it clear enough this TED talk made that clear, so the response I got was "are you sure? You can just come by a few hours? I think it's good for you" and my boss put herself in my shoes and she is a very hard worker and she would have felt better to take her own advice in my shoes, but she forgot I am not her and I think people should start using the support "What do you need?" More often. Let the person speak for their own situation first before giving advice. When people ask what I need, I feel they respect me. And make it about me and my shoes.

There was definitely a lot of filler content to get his time up. Not sure why he talked about his brothers - he even prefaced the story by saying it will provide context to everything else he said. If that's true, I missed his point(s) so to me - bad talk.

Prolonged insomnia leads to job loss. Personal experience talking. You loose your emotional judgement and you can't function at work. Your memory goes away. You CONSTANTLY loose the thread. You become a useless toddler. YOU CAN'T HELP ANYONE!!! And no one can help YOU. Your brain stays depleted. Your health crumbles. Depression and anxiety move in. If you're lucky you find some sort of work that you can manage. There's not a lot of dopamine involved.

The sound in this video is gone to chips and scratching and chirps...in my left ear. Left is not my dominant ear and without close captioning, I would never have figured out a word of what you are saying...the sound is so degraded.

Healing is a very long process , one thing I know for sure , is just a quick talk about your feelings , and things that may add to your pain , helps. After writing about & accepting the past , I certainly feel better emotionally , and my physical pain and sickness is much less to bear , I think I’ve learnt I can’t deal with all types of pain at once , I’m human and my limits in managing pain became clear , I thought I could take all pain , a life time of pain , I thought I could really survive and get through and suffer the worst pain , as I have. But I know , that I’m only human , my body & mind has had its limit. I’ve learned pain can become to much for one person. I’ve reach my capacity . In my experience of being sick & unwell , I’ve learned things we tolerate are intolerable in pain. I think we just want to heal all sources of pain , to eliviate suffering. And that’s why we try anything to heal , these videos & writing here , has really helped my mind to start to repair & heal ..... very slowly , These videos , keep me living daily . I get so many answers to my questions on here ...... I hope one day , I start to trust humans again & trust in humanity , I hope these videos heal me ..... because I’ve tried being around people in the real world & I don’t like it , I just feel very “sensitive” ...... at the moment , I just need to repair my mind , before I start following orders , and repairing material stuff. bit worried about this latest episode of illness , because I can’t put my finger on exactly what triggered it . I just don’t want it to happen again it was very quick , I’ve avoided all things that trigger me & make me ill. I think the trigger of late could not have been avoided by me , But happened to me . That’s what is confusing & hard about the healing process . A shattered depressed mind , really dosnt know how to fix itself. My past coping strategy with pain was to forget & feel numb. That’s not viable, now as I’m to unwell & tired to even try to stick to hobbies & housework , & even experience any life. So writing , & videos , prayers , listening to meditation ,and pastors testimony’s , & accepting traumas. Grief & loss & accepting past memories , have been a massive comfort to me ....... 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

This is powerful information. We think that by sharing our 'stuff', we are connecting. But I see that just listening and asking a simple question about what they shared is much more powerful. I guess we all want to be heard and appreciated for what we've shared, But timing is everything! This reinforces my journey to be a better listener, and showing my caring by taking in what they have shared, and holding back from diluting their experience. Thanks so much for illustrating such a clear picture of what that looks like from the other side of the conversation.
