In this episode, best-selling author and international speaker, Dr. Tim Elmore shares insights from his book, Generation Z Unfiltered: Facing Nine Hidden Challenges of the Most Anxious Population, and explains why today’s students are the most social, most empowered, and the most anxious youth population in human history. Elmore, founder and CEO of Growing Leaders, an Atlanta-based non-profit organization that develops emerging leaders, also reflects on his time working alongside leadership guru John C. Maxwell and how teaching needs to look different in 21st century classrooms, empowering kids to make decisions and take ownership for their own actions. Finally, Elmore talks about the urgency to teach essential skills to prepare kids for a future of work in a skills-based “gig” economy. Twitter: @TimElmore. Website: www.growingleaders.com.
