In preparing for a strategic planning retreat with a nonprofit next week, who is looking to recruit, retain, and motivate the next generations, Generation “X” and Generation “We” or also called the Millennial generation, I discovered this phenomenal video. Watch it, be inspired, and, if you are of the “Boomer Generation” lament over the world we are turning over to our children and grandchildren, and then join me in doing something about it!
This is a powerful reminder that what we do today, not only reflects on tomorrow, but has perilous consequences for our children, our planet, and the future. Leadership is about change, and change just may take a new generation at the helm, who have more at stake than any other generation that has gone before them. Without a generation that is passionate to make a difference, this could be our last! Yet, if you’re like me, you’ll want to join their efforts, in whatever way possible, and “Be” the difference NOW.
One way I am working on making a difference is through training that inspires the generations on how to effectively work “with” one another, in order to engendering collaboration which elicit environments where creativity is used to discover the answers to the dilemmas we have created.
