The Build A Bear Generation

If you are employing Millennials, young people between 20 and 35 years, you are working with the Build-a-Bear generation. It is helpful to understand where they come from in order to know how to move forward proactively with them.

Whether they have been over-parented or under-parented, they are now journeying with you and you are the de facto family. You take over now from where their parents left off, whether you know it or not. The parenting journey continues into the workplace where they will spend more time with you than they do with their family or friends. As a manager you will shape them in one way or another.

With her insights and experience as a speaker, author and parenting thought leader, Nikki Bush will help you to understand this generation from her unique point of view. These pearls of wisdom will be invaluable as you journey forward, finding ways to connect with, and lead, your Millennials to mutual success.

A one-hour keynote presentation. Also an excellent precursor to the keynote presentation called Becoming a Journeyman.

Testimonials

  • My son was in your digital safety talk this morning and he is a very intuitive and in touch child who makes quick an accurate assessments of people. He came home and told me all about the talk and the thing he remembered most was what you had to say about reputation. He also said that you are a very good person inside and out and that I was not to miss your talk to the parents this evening, and he was right. What a valuable and informative presentation. Thank you!

  • I own a Montessori preschool, teach a class of 20 children and am a mother of two toddlers under the age of 5, so I know my way around children. I can read their moods and stimulate them appropriately. Nikki Bush's Parenting on the Run workshop made me excited about parenting, it opened my eyes to a simpler, easier way of connecting with my children - both in the classroom and at home. I remembered and experienced what it feels like to be present, and the importance of giving my children the best present which is my presence. I can't wait to start a new family ritual and play all the games with my little ones.Thank you Nikki Bush!
