CM129: “How to Coach (and be coached by) Millennials” with special guest Tim Sanders
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 Challenges. Describing 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!
“Really, coaching is simplicity. It’s getting players to play better than they think they can.”
