Character & Mental Toughness- Gen Y

When I come across something I feel might be particularly valuable, I will put up a link to it on the right of my page.  I will also retweet it when I can (@coachbillmoore).

I came across a piece on Gen Y this morning that I found via @RandyConley.  I’m never a fan of throwing people into presumptive boxes, but there is no denying certain generational differences; particularly strengths and weaknesses.  In studying these differences, one is better able to relate to and help develop young people.

Inter-generational relations at home, in schools, on athletic fields, and in the work place can often lead to conflict and hostility.  A better understanding of differences may help people in parenting, teaching, coaching, and managing those who are a generation or two younger.

Here is a link to the Gen Y piece that includes a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses as well as an attempt to shed light on certain myths related to this group.

When you have time, you may want to investigate the other videos, articles, and written works I have also linked.

    I teach Gen Y and there absolutely is a difference. They grew up in times of general prosperity and never learned much about making sacrifices or tough choices.

    They are motivated not by fun, but by EXTREME fun which makes serious teaching quite a challenge.
