Acting more rational - changing our automatic behavior | Ashley Zahabian | TEDxStanleyPark

  • Опубликовано: 3 апр 2017
  • Our feelings naturally determine our behavior, but learning to become aware and change our behavior for a better outcome takes emotional intelligence. How can we learn and increase emotional intellect? Ashley Zahabian teaches us two practical ways we can all biologically and actively change the way we behave for better outcomes, and how we can think more clearly and rationally towards life success.
    Ashley Zahabian is a well sought-out presenter on leadership and emotional intelligence in business and life. Visit Ashley at, or email her at
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    It's crazy because this is the ACTUAL BEST AND MOST MEANINGFUL TED Talk ever but it has lesser views. Proves the intelligence of the masses 🤷

    I absolutely LOVE that you're teaching this powerful practice! These things you've taught are all outlined in detail in the evidence-based practice of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and I recommend to anyone that loves your presentation to take a course in DBT to protocol. It is life-changing and good for anyone who wants to truly advance Emotional Intelligence! Thank you Ashly for sharing your amazing story and journey and being an inspiration!

    At school, we have to choose a declamation to say in front of everyone.... So I chose this one. Every one else is choosing a famous person (Queen of England, famous sport players, etc) but this one of Ashley's speeches(a speech? A declamation?) stood out to me the most. I think it might be able to help the kids, and maybe even the teachers too! I was going to choose the one about like don't give up, and rebuilding self-esteem, etc. But the teacher who assigned this said no because I don't know where she said it... Then while looking later, it was made for a certain 'group' of people online. I looked everywhere and it wasn't said. So I chose this one...

    i thought she was latina but afterwards when i puzzled at her mental fragility i guessed she was probably arabic/N African/Orient ethnicity because i have lots of them in town and there are a lot of nervous and edge of nerve stability ones. they are cooky as fkkkkkkkkkkkk lol. i wonder what it would be like being one of them observing our mental faculties. what tendencies do cookie whites have? psyched out?
