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

Gen Z and Politics

Many members of Gen Z are still in middle school, but the eldest are flooding into college, the workplace and the voting booth. They have clout already. Born with Their Eyes Open A realistic bunch, Zs approach adulthood after wading through years of terrorist attacks, financial meltdowns, racial and religious conflict, and entrenched political divide. This has made them fairly pessimistic. Forty percent of Gen Zs think the world is becoming a worse place. Only 20 percent believe... Read More

Goodbye Trophy Kids. Hello Workaholics.

Each new generation gets slammed when it first comes to work. Generation Xers were called "Slackers." Boomers were labeled "lazy hippies" and the "Me, Me, Me" generation. When Millennials came to work a decade ago, they were called "Trophy Kids," a reference to entitlement and unearned rewards.   That was then. This is now. Nearly half the workforce is Millennial, and more than 25% of them are managers. Millennials have outgrown their bad... Read More
