View From the Cloud

In chapter 12 of Millennial Leaders, we honor two leaders from St. Cloud Minnesota:  Mayor David Kleis and 14-year old Austin Lee.

Austin has been featured all over the news for his leadership and expertise at such a young age.  You see, when Austin went to Mayor Kleis and told him about his ideas for a new skate park, Kleis was extremely impressed…so much so that he appointed Austin to the Parks and Rec board…now that’s a bold move.

Austin’s dad, Jeff, is such a humble man…he quietly goes about supporting Austin, and he did post about Austin being featured in our book in his blog View from the Cloud (you gotta love that blog name!)  He apologized for apperaing to be braggadocious, and so I did leave a comment for Jeff…here is what I said (and I believe this heart and soul).

“Jeff…Thank-you for mentioning about Austin. I have been telling the world about him, so I can say with confidence that he is one amazing kid (as I am sure your other kids are).

As a parent of three college-age kids, I know how it feels to “brag” about your kids…but you know what…I think that often parents don’t say enough great things about their kids. We are their advocates, so it makes me smile to hear you stepping up and being proud of Austin…and telling people about it.

What many people don’t know is that when our kids put their heads on their pillows at night, they want to know that their parents love them and are proud of them…so I encourage you to continue putting out to the world all that Austin and your kids are doing. It is certainly something to share!”

So, if you are reading this and you have children…do one thing tomorrow…brag on them to one person…it will make your child’s day!.

Executive Coaches Get to the Heart of Gen Y in Millennial Leaders: Success Stories from Today’s Most Brilliant Generation Y Leaders

Southern Pines, NC (PRWEB) November 7, 2007 – Bea Fields joins a distinguished group of executive coaches to present the new book, Millennial Leaders: Success Stories from Today’s Most Brilliant Generation Y Leaders (http://MillennialLeaders.com). This volume, co-authored with fellow executive coaches Scott K. Wilder, Jim Bunch, and Rob Newbold, is packed with insight and promises to be the go-to text for people looking for a glimpse into the mindset of the emerging group of business leaders from so-called Generation Y — those between ages 18 and 30.

“We had two missions in writing this book,” said Bea Fields, one of the authors and President of the Bea Fields Companies. “One is to show Gen Y some sure-fire secrets to supercharge their career and personal lives. The other is to show older leaders that they have nothing to fear from Gen Y.”

Natural entrepreneurs with adventurous spirits, members of Generation Y are just now making an impact in business and in the culture at large. In addition, as the first group to grow up immersed in media culture, they have a distinctive way of ordering their lives. And Millennial Leaders brings readers a unique, close up look at the people responsible for the cutting edge of social and business trends. The authors offer 25 interviews with the Gen Y members.

Millennial Leaders genius is that it acts as a kind of double guide. For older generations who need to unlock the code of how to communicate with Generation Y, the book provides substantial insight into their psychology. As well, Millennial Leaders provides Gen Y with over 100 successful, concrete strategies for personal and career success. The book inspires older generations who want and need to be receptive to members of Gen Y while at the same time helping Gen Y members chart a sure course to achievement.

The result is a book that merges the author’s own unique skills with the special insights proper to this up and coming generation.

“They are our future, and it is time to start working with them — not resisting their efforts,” said Fields.

Millennial Leaders

As many of you know, over the last 18 months, I have had the opportunity to dedicate a bulk of my time and energy in the direction of Generation Y Leadership.  I have been studying, reading and interviewing over 100 Generation Y Leaders.  As a result, my new book:  Millennial Leaders:  Success Stories from Today’s Most Brilliant Generation Y Leaders is now available to the public.

On November 2, I joined 4 colleagues who are featured in the book:  Scott K. Wilder, Misti Burmesiter, Ben Casnocha and David Charles Cohen in presenting the topic Coaching at the Speed of Y to the International Coach Federation.  We had over 100 questions submitted following the event, so I am going to start answering the questions in this blog.

One of the questions was:  What are the age ranges of each generation?  I am going to answer this question based on Dr. Carolyn Martin’s and RainmakerThinking, Inc’s definition.  So, here we go…birth years for each generation:

Traditionalists:  Born before 1946
Baby Boomers:  1846-1964
Gen X:  1964-1977
Gen Y:  Born after 1977

So, keep checking back each day for more to come.  And…visit us today online at MillennialLeaders.com..
