Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid: Leading Your Kids to Succeed in Life, with Dr. Tim Gilmore

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 00:00:00 GMT - Fri, 26 Jan 2018 04:59:00 GMT

Leading today's students often feels like being in a new country. The population in this new land has different attitudes and speaks a different language. Attention spans are six to eight seconds. They multi-task on five screens. They often possess multiple personas on social media platforms. Understanding and connecting with this generation is often times frustrating and draining.
 
The old maps that helped adults navigate students through adolescence are now producing graduates who move back home, are afraid to take healthy risks, and are unwilling to start at the bottom of a career path. We are in new territory.

This session will help us, adults, discover the missteps we unknowingly make which are affecting our young adolescents and emerging leaders. During this session, Dr. Elmore will unpack how we risk too little, we rescue too quickly, we reward too frequently, and we rave too easily. Based on Tim Elmore’s book, 12 Huge Mistakes Parents Can Avoid: Leading Your Kids to Succeed in Life.

Marching Off the Map, with Dr. Tim Elmore

Fri, 26 Jan 2018 13:30:00 GMT - Fri, 26 Jan 2018 17:00:00 GMT

The Baby Boomers were the first generation who grew up with the one-eyed babysitter: the TV. Today, they are parents and teachers, and they're now raising a generation of firsts - kids who are growing up with a portable device in their hands. How do we navigate this world that isn't going away, but that is reducing the empathy, patience and emotional intelligence of our young people? This event provides a compass for leading a generation of "firsts" full of practical tips for marching into new territory while enabling our kids and students to embrace timeless values and soft skills.

Faculty and Staff will learn:
  • Inspire students to own their education and their future
  • Lead students from an attitude of apathy to one of passion through metacognition
  • Enable students to push back from the constant digital distractions and practice mindfulness
  • Raise kids who make healthy progress, both emotionally and mentally, through their teenage years
  • Give students the tools to handle the complexities of an ever-changing world
  • Understand and practically apply the latest research on Generation Z
