Talkin' Bout My Generation

In working with the Center for Creative Leadership's Leadership Beyond Boundaries (LBB) early leadership programs, we like to think back to what it was like when we were around 16 years old, the approximate age of many of our youth participants. In this recent BILL (Big Ideas in Leadership and Learning) Talk on inter-generational leadership I share my experience growing up as Gen-Xer and a notion I call Generational Nationalism, encouraging us to think about how we can foster inter-generational relationships in our own lives.

The Center for Creative Leadership’s staff gives homage to TED Talks by presenting their own rendition in sessions they call BILL Talks (Big Ideas about Leadership & Learning). BILL Talks presenters are asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation following the two IGNITE format rules: 1) You get exactly 20 slides.  2) You get exactly 15 seconds per slide that transition automatically. I presented my BILL Talk at the April 21, 2016 session.
