Enter the Ear Bud

If you are Gen X or Millennial, and certainly if you are Gen Z, you may never have been outside the range of urban noise. Traffic, electronics, construction—they’re everywhere. In fact, most of us live above the 75-decibel noise level health experts recommend. Even average noise levels in our homes easily reach 90 decibels. Meanwhile out in the wild, nature is getting drowned out. In nearly two-thirds of US national parks, airplanes, cars mining and drilling are regularly twice the... Read More

Work with Other Generations. It Makes You Smarter.

Diverse teams get better results. They bring home more sales, more customers, more profit and more innovation. But this is completely counterintuitive . Working with people who are like us feels more effective. On a homogenous team, people understand each other quickly, and collaboration flows smoothly. The sameness gives us the sensation of progress. In reality,  friction adds value. For example, more diverse juries weigh cases more deeply. When homogenous teams... Read More

Which Generation Were You Born to Lead?

“Leader” is a loaded word.Each generation defines it differently. If you work with the Silent Generation, the ghost of the “leader as commander” lingers in the air. For Silents, leadership was based on role. In the business world, executives led like generals. If you work in a traditional industry like law, medicine, accounting or government, you'll encounter this leadership model. Tips for Leading in Highly Traditional Settings ... Read More

Which Generation Are You When You Learn?

Books vs YouTube: The Digital Difference in Learning Styles  There’s a line of thought that goes like this—we all use the same technology, so we’re all one generation. Ummmm . .  Not so fast. We’re not one big uni-gen, even if all of us do use smart phones and apps. Each generation is shaped by lots of factors besides technology. Economic boom or bust, war and peace, the mood of the country, the... Read More

So, Where's the Wisdom?

Recently at a 4GenNow Conference, I heard Nick Titus , a 17-year-old company founder and CEO, say "If you will listent to me, then I will listen to you. But this has to go both ways."  Suddenly I had a lightbulb moment. For years I’ve shown the image above to audiences and asked, “Where is the information?” This gets people talking about top-down communication vs collaboration.  But as Titus spoke, I realized...

What Will Happen Next? The Answer Is WHO.

I can totally relate to the jumper above. Entering 2018 feels like making a crazy leap into an unknown future where things keep changing fast. Disruption is the new normal. Maybe like me you often wonder what will happen next. If so, there's good news. The question that unlocks the future is not “What will happen next?” Ask instead, “ WHO will happen next?” Who is positioned to bring new and timely innovation to your company? Who is reshaping...

A Front Seat for Disruption

I live in Nashville, so I’ve had a front seat for the disruption of the music industry.  The model used to be roughly linear. Artists created music. Labels developed and promoted that music to radio stations and retail stores. At the end of the chain, people bought the music. First as albums, then later as cassettes and CDs.  The move from vinyl to cassettes and CDs was interesting, but it wasn’t disruption. That was just evolution. Disruption... Read More

Whatcha Gonna Call Gen Z?

Many factors shape a generation – the economy, the political scene, parenting trends, educational methods and big turning-point events like the Kennedy and King assassinations, 9/11 or The Great Depression. A new generation is created when several elements like those above come together and create a clear shift in the national mood—from passionate to cynical maybe or, more recently, from cynical to urgent.  Right now, we’re watching those...

Books to Blogs. What You Must Learn Now

Our brains are effectively "wired" by the technology we use, especially the tech we use when we’re young.     Your Brain on Books If you’re a Boomer, the primary technology in your classroom was a book. You read for thousands of hours, and that did things to your brain. Your brain learned to be still, to focus, to ignore distractions. Reading is like swimming in the deep end of the pool rather than playing in the shallows. ... Read More
