So, Where's the Wisdom?

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...

Can a Company Have Gen IQ? Sure It Can. (Or, Why Nobody Got Fired.)

The Boomer president of a law firm was concerned about young attorneys who dressed more casually than he thought appropriate. So he sent an email to everybody saying that he wanted all attorneys in suits during client meetings. One Millennial attorney didn’t agree. He gave the email some thought and decided to respond. He wrote, “I have a lot of young clients. A suit may not be the right move when meeting with them.” He carefully constructed his arguments for going casual.... Read More

Innovation: Part of the Job

No matter where you look, innovation is transforming old, overwhelmed systems. No industry is like it was 5 years ago. Online shopping disrupts store-front retail. Online degrees disrupt campus-based education. Newspapers are failing, and Twitter is growing. Entrepreneurs crowdsource their start-ups, seek gigs rather than careers, and use Uber rather than buy a cars.   No More Status Quo This fits with generational cycles.

Why a Generations Keynote?

“Why would I come to your generations keynote?” a friend asked me. “I already know I’m a Boomer, so what’s the point?” I considered my friend—a successful realtor, energetic, all over FaceBook and Twitter. “Is there an age group you just don’t like as clients?” I asked. “I like everybody,” she said.

Innovation is Generational

Your definition of innovation depends on your generation.  Silents The Silent Generation went to work right after World War II when innovation included things like penicillin, radar, rockets and rubber.
