It seems like every Boomer manager is trying to learn how to coach Millennials…or something. On rare occasions, the enlightened Boomer manager can actually see the value in being coached BY a Millennial. In this phenomenal episode, we are joined by the incomparable Tim Sanders (@sandersays) for a discussion about how to coach Millennials…and the insane idea (to some managers, at least) of being coached by Millennials.

Tim, a former Yahoo! executive, is the NY Times best-selling author of Love is the Killer App and Dealstorming: The Secret Weapon That Can Save Your Toughest Sales ChallengesDescribing himself as “obsessed” with the idea of mentorship, he shares his wisdom about what the mentor stands to gain from the relationship– in other words, what Boomers can learn from Millennials!

Join Kelly and Robby as they enjoy a stimulating conversation with Tim about respecting the wisdom of the older generation and staying open-minded to the insights and ideas of the younger generation.
