When Fish See the Water

“I’m having an ah-ha moment,” the Gen X manager said. Everyone in the conference room turned her way.

Trusting Tech (and Strangers)

Trust is interesting currency. The other day I requested a ride from Lyft and was shown a photo of my smiling “new friend.” When she arrived, smile intact, I gave her the prerequisite fist bump and got in. Never saw her before in my life. Total stranger. And total trust. But what was I trusting? Lisa, my driver, was chatty and bright, easy to trust. But before I ever met Lisa, when she was still just pixels on my iPhone, I had decided that, barring a bloody axe on... Read More

Hitting Walls? Experiment with Space.

Not long ago, I closed a breakout for managers by thanking the group for taking time away from their offices to attend. One Gen Xer laughed and raised his IPhone. “No problem,” he said. “This  is  my office.” His comment reminded me of how radically the ways we work have changed. Traditionally, productivity was characterized by long hours of solitary, seated activity with an occasional break to confer with colleagues. Bred to the captivity... Read More

Marketing to Mini-Makers

Were still learning about Gen Z, born between 1995 and 2010, but the race is already on to engage this generation of digital, resourceful realists.  If not to sell to them directly, then to influence them to, in turn, influence their Gen X parents to view brands favorably. Why the imperative to create brand relationships with kids still in elementary and middle school? One reason. Their first language is digital. As true digital natives (they don’t remember...

Tweet This. (Or not)

I needed some help setting up bank-to-bank transfers. No biggie, but technical enough that I did the Boomer thing and actually walked into the branch in person . Think Throwback Thursday.
