That Moment When your Employee Quits via SnapChat

It’s no secret that younger generations prefer to communicate digitally. In fact, more than 70% of Millennials prefer to receive communication in a digital format.

But, even with this overwhelming preference, there are certain messages that are too important to just send in a text, right?

I mean, shouldn’t some things just be done in person...

Well...not according to a recent study conducted by Adobe. They surveyed over 1000 employees and the results were surprising: ...

Debunking the Myth: People Quit Bosses

(hint: they’re going to quit anyway)

In today’s transformational talk, here’s what I want to convey.

There are a lot of good reasons to leave your job:

  • Your company gets sold
  • A death in the family
  • An unhealthy or toxic environment

That sorta thing.

If you’re a millennial, the reasons get a little more fun:

  • Freelancing from a laptop for half the pay and twice the time off is fun
  • You want to travel long-term while you’re in your 20s
  • Cause you don’t feel...

Raising Other People's Kids 😕

Listen, I’m all about being practical. Here's a quick statistic and action item that you can easily apply to gain an advantage. 

Allow me to present to you a serious problem:

A lot of leaders who I talk to are parents, they’re dads and moms who have been working professionals, but have also raised children.

Children are the greatest blessing, but raising a child is difficult. It's a lot of work, it’s a lot of stress and you have to treat every child differently.

Nice vs. Kind

Have you ever asked yourself the difference between two similar words? In this case, as a leader of young people, what does it mean to be nice? What does it mean to be kind?

There are a lot of aphorisms as explanations.  

In the kitchen, chefs always tell their sous chefs, make it nice or make it twice.  

Our parents always tell us to be nice.  

And yet, you have to be cruel to be kind.

What a confounding situation.

Being nice and being kind are matters of perception

The Plight of the Perfectionist

I’m here to talk to you about the plight of the perfectionist. Some of us are perfectionists, myself included… maybe you show tendencies…

But, it’s a wide spectrum AND there are a lot of people who follow our content that want to complete tasks with excellence, so I have a strong warning for you….

Here's the big issue... according to me.

 

When we are perfectionists, we expect that we will manifest our best every time.

We always expect to be doing our...

Creating Experiences For The Young Adults In Our Workforce

Recently we had a Transformational Talk in which I talked about how millennials value experiences more than things; so, items, material positions etc.

I think it’s interesting because this is different from many other generations who didn’t grow up with many possessions.

Looking at the Silent Generation, they went through the Great Depression and had nothing. Think about our grandparent’s stories how they literally had nothing to their name.

Next, we consider the Baby...

How Much Money Does It Take To Make A Millennial Happy?

 

The old mentality of compensation is dead. Have you read the news lately? Millennial employees have high expectations of their salary and financial future, more than any other generation in history. Millennial optimism and goal-setting have contributed to a strong correlation between their relationship to their job and the self-actualizing society that surrounds them. Do not blame social media, though!

Blame Tim Ferriss. Blame Chris Guillebeau and Tai Lopez. Blame the 'lifestyle...

The One-Two Punch: Employee Engagement

 Here’s the thing about employee engagement- there are a number of ways to achieve it and there are a number of ways to mess it up.

The truth is, we’ll never experience success without laying the proper foundation of two critical elements.

1. Sharing Our Vision

2. Living By Core Values

Although seemingly obvious and arguably simple to integrate, we still fail to engage our teams on a consistent basis and are obviously failing as a cohort of bosses.

In fact, according to...

Motivation vs. Inspiration

 

I recently attended the global leadership Summit hosted by Willow Creek church in Chicago. Each year, I look forward to participating in this conference because the lineup of amazing speakers is incredible.

This year showcased John Maxwell, Simon Sinek, Sheila Heen, Craig Groeschel, and many more. All leadership experts and very successful individuals in their careers and various companies. 

Interestingly, the very first speaker on the first day was breaking down the difference...

The Disruption of Maslow’s

The Decision Making Failures of the American Millennial

In this transformational talk, I discuss the disruption of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.


To recap Maslow’s: it's a (self-described) hierarchy of needs that should dictate a person’s decision-making process.

Maslow’s is broken down into three different sets of needs.

  • Basic Needs
  • Psychological Needs
  • Self Actualization Needs
