When I was a generational leadership speaker for a health care facility, I found that 45% of the leadership was Generation X and Y. That meant that over 50% of their subordinates were older than them. Many young, savvy career oriented professionals today find themselves leading older generations. Age dictates a lot about who we are and the decisions we make. Real differences exist across generations in our values and work preferences.
Now more than ever, people need to laugh. Just look around, and you see overstressed, overworked people.
I am a motivational keynote speaker for a Parks and Recreation Conference in June. From my pre- program interviews I am reminded how parks and recreation professionals and our nations parks have a positive impact on our communities.
