Listening is the Tipping Point


On Saturday, September 16, under the theme of “Tipping Point,” eight TED X presenters spoke about leadership skills, human potential, benefits of charitable works and about gratitude.

The event was held at the Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center in Oneonta. About 100 guests attended and listened to speakers and participated in exercises.

The presenter that traveled furthest for the event was Emma Doyle, a tennis coach from Australia, who spoke about "Unleashing Female Potential."

She discussed coaching style-- and emphasized that asking players how they would approach an unsuccessful play differently is more constructive than identifying “what went wrong.” She said listening builds trust that helps players to unleash their potential.

“Listening is the tipping point,” she said, a message that applies on and off the court.

There were about 20 co-sponsors for the TED X even, including Chobani, Hartwick College and CDO Workforce.
