How to Capitalize on the Younger Generations on Your Team
Everyone has witnessed the culture wars. People in our society seem polarized over values and social issues. While I believe those battles are real, there’s a deeper issue at play that we have ignored. You might call it, “generational wars.” It’s happening every day in our workplaces.
Good news: We now have an event that covers this topic for school campuses, as well as a new book coming out on October 25th, entitled: A New Kind of Diversity: Making the Different Generations on Your Team a Competitive Advantage. If you are a current partner of Growing Leaders and you are interested in hosting A New Kind of Diversity Event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

What We Should Say as Our Students Perform
When kids are younger, parents often play the role of supervisor. They are right there on top of the issues. And they should be—young children need the support of their parents. As they age, parents must move to the role of consultants. Parents should still be involved and still be supportive but must allow kids to grow up and self-regulate. In this episode, Tim and Andrew discuss ways that parents can cultivate emotionally healthy kids and give action steps for parents to implement in their everyday parenting styles.

How Four Generations Differ in Their Approaches to Work
The generational diversity we feel in our lives is not going away anytime soon. Because people are living and working longer, we will experience multiple generations on teams we may be a part of.

In this episode, Tim and Andrew give advice on how we can build bridges rather than walls for newer and older generations.

I have enjoyed listening to and learning from this content. I am a high school teacher and a homeschooling parent and am able to apply many of the ideas presented. My only request is to work on the sound— it’s so quiet compared to other podcasts I listen to! It will come up in a playlist and I’ll have to jack up the volume after a previous podcaster, then I have to remember to crank it down before the next podcast so I don’t get my ears blasted out—
This is amazing!
As a middle school teacher I have found so much of this to be extremely helpful for me as I seek to grow my students into the next generation of incredible leaders!
