An excellent article by Gwen Moran who says:
In the world of talent management, high-performing employees, or HIPOs, are the holy grail.

Or… How To Give A Great TED Talk.
According to Seth Godin:
The spread of TED talks means that more and more people are being put on stage and told to memorize their talk. This almost always leads to failure.
Watch a great performance and you’ll see no artifacts of memorization. Instead, you will see someone speaking from the heart.
This is what it means to know something by heart. Memorizing the words is half of it. And woefully insufficient.
My suggestion: Don’t memorize your talk. Memorize your stories. Ten stories make a talk. Write yourself a simple cue card to remember each story’s name. Then tell us ten stories. Be you.
We didn’t come to hear your words. If that’s all we wanted, we could have read the memo and saved a ton of time.
Bring your heart.
