Look no further for the summer read that will grab your attention and possibly ignite ideas to re-pivot your team and your workplace. Lindsey Pollak’s The Remix shows you how to adapt and win through proven strategies that serve all generations’ needs. The result is a workplace that blends the best of each generation’s ideas and practices to design a smarter, more inclusive work environment for everyone.
Millennials have only just begun their reign as the largest generation in the workplace. But they are not alone. For the next decade at least, these young professionals will be working side by side with more established generations, including the Baby Boomers who are working longer than ever, and an entirely new group coming up, Generation Z.
This means within any organization, any team, any meeting, any marketing opportunity, you may find any combination of generations. Each of these age groups has their own attitude, expectations, and professional style. To lead and succeed in any organization today, you must adapt to how Millennials work, while continuing to accommodate their older colleagues and paying attention to the next generations coming up. The Remix shows you how to adapt and win through proven strategies that serve all generations’ needs.
As the leading expert on generations in the workplace, Lindsey Pollak combines the most recent data from a variety of authoritative sources with her own original research, as well as detailed case studies from her Fortune 500 clients. Pollak outlines the ways businesses, executives, mid-level managers, employees, and entrepreneurs can handle situations that may arise when diverse styles clash and provide clear strategies to turn generational diversity into a business opportunity. Generational change is impacting all industries, all types of organizations, and all leaders. The Remix is an essential read for anyone who wants to survive and thrive today and into the future.
We had a mix of subject matter experts (not just on the panel!), folks creating social justice solutions, creatives and marketers all thrown together to play our ‘Blockchain GAME’.
Each player received a Starter envelope labeled with a letter and a number. Inside were either 3 tokens and/or pencil toppers or fun gadgets. Players
Participated in an exchange where one player ‘sent’ another player tokens by declaring both parties and amounts.
Players verified the transaction, checking the sender was not an impersonator and actually had the funds to make the exchange.
Once the exchange occurred. The transaction was recorded on the team’s ledger.
Of course, we had a few ‘rules of the game’ some of which included that
Players who began with a ‘toy’ had to SELL it during the game
Players who began with tokens had to ‘make a purchase’
The fun really got started when Player E was found to have passed on a contaminant.
Lucky we had ‘kept track’ of every transaction. Hence we were able to remove the ‘contaminated’ tokens.
Supply chain transactions are a natural fit for Blockchain. In real-life such as the romaine lettuce scare earlier this year, if the path of transactions were executed using blockchain, you could quickly detect the source of the contaminant and remove it. Why is this important? Millions or billions of dollars are spent pulling food and other items ‘off the shelf’. By using blockchain, the transactions are transparent and traceable.
Get excited about Blockchain. The team at Insight Data Science and WST have been working to create a hands-on workshop where you will walk away with an understanding of what Blockchain is and how it can be utilized. As well plan to add a notch up on your ‘data-driven awareness’. Registration will open shortly. Our host: Heroku-Salesforce. Mark your calendar for February 7, 2019 from 6-9pm

….is a bulletproof record-keeping system. That’s it, really. Provided it’s running on a robust-enough computer network, blockchains produce incorruptible records. That may not sound like much, but records are remembering. Records are the protection of our memories for the future…..’ By, Maria Bustillos
“Maria Shriver’s life is often summarized in fairy tale terms. A child of the Kennedy clan in the Camelot aura of the early 1960s. Daughter of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who founded the Special Olympics, and Sargent Shriver, who helped found the Peace Corps. An esteemed broadcast journalist. First lady of California. This hour, she opens up about having a personal history that is also public history — and how deceptive the appearance of glamour can be. ” from On Being Studios with Krista Tippett
