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.
