Since the initial introduction of our blog, the “Generational Gems for Future Leaders” category has been a reader favorite.
We created this feature with the hope and purpose of making certain future generations have access to the wonderful lessons, anecdotes, allegories, parables, and narratives that we experienced and enjoyed over the decades. Anyone in business for any substantial length of time has had the benefit and privilege to hear words of wisdom from some of the greatest leaders, writers, consultants, speakers and authors in the world.
We were originally targeting high school and college audiences with these Gems but have been pleasantly surprised to find that they have been warmly accepted by many adults in new leadership roles and even by those who heard them years ago and are reminded of their impact once again.
In fact, many of our clients have shared appropriate Gems with their staff as part of their in-service training sessions while others are reprinting the Gems in their newsletters. These precious stories certainly drive home critical lessons we all need to hear and/or be reminded of. We have high schools printing them in their newspapers, teachers sharing them with their classes, and have even had a church print several of them in its newsletter.
As a result of this very positive acceptance, we have added Generational Gems for Future Leaders to our list of keynote presentations. Although we can’t possibly share them all with every audience, we can certainly present a fitting combination of Gems tailored to each client and time allotment based on the results of our initial telephone consultation.
Share a blend of the following Gems with your students, staff, or clients: The Bridge Builder, The Guy in the Glass, Acres of Diamonds, Priming the Pump, The 4-Minute Miles, Magic Marbles, The Struggle of the Butterfly, Kindergarten Kandor, Dismount the Dead Horse, The Monk and the Travelers, Grandma’s Cake of Life, The Ham and the Pan, The Parable of the Pebbles, The Star Thrower and many others. The keynote presentation will consist of sharing a number of Gems complete with discussion on bridging each with daily challenges and opportunities.
We owe it to future generations to share the wisdom that has passed the test of time and inspired generations of those engaged in the pursuit of career success.
