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.

Impatient Patients?

What’s a patient? A sick person who receives care, right? Yes, and also no. That verb “receive” is outdated. Younger generations aren’t content to simply receive care. Increasingly, they expect to design the experience more or less for themselves. Gen X, Millennials and forward-thinking Boomers approach care as a transaction. What does this mean for providers? Here’s quick look at the very different generations in your population. Baby Boomers The big news... Read More

Dear Agent: 5 Ways to Win My Business and 5 Sure Ways to Lose It. Sincerely, Millennials

We interviewed Millennials about buying investments and insurance. Here’s what they said: 5 Ways to Win My Business 1. Approach me through my parents . That’s OK by me so long as you have a product I need. I’ll still research the competition, but my parents’ recommendation means a lot. 2. Let me do this online . I want an easy-to-use online portal with 24/7 live chat support. If we never talk face to face, that’s OK. If we need to meet, try a coffee... Read More
