We’re talking with Brad Staats. I read Brad’s book, Never Stop Learning, as part of a book club I belong to. The whole book is good, but I really was struck by his chapter on failure. Now, anyone with a podcast knows that the way is littered with failure. Guests who drone on and on, recordings that fail, sound that makes it sound like your podcast is under the sea…I’ve pretty much done everything about this podcast wrong at least once. So, when Brad wrote that failure is necessary and good? Made me feel better! I raised my daughter to be brave, and I believe in taking risks. So why does failure feel so awful if it’s a necessary part of the process?
You see it all the time in the movies. The older worker gets a younger boss and…boom…the older worker is out. The truth is, Generation Y is moving into leadership roles, and we’d better get ready to work and think differently. Guest Bonnie Hagemann talks with us about how to work with a younger boss – and how this generation may be better suited for leadership. Bonnie is the CEO of Executive Development Associates and you may have seen her in Forbes, Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, or the Financial Times. When your boss is way younger than you are, on Keep it Juicy!
