I got to know Brad Szollose when I was looking for a few generational stats to use in a presentation. We're part of a group of speakers who helps each other, and Brad stepped right up to say this was his expertise. I thanked him for the stats, used them in my presentation (with full credit of course) and then started researching him.
Brad is a generational expert! He wrote the book on them in Liquid Leadership, and he travels around the world, consulting with companies and delivering programs to young and old, new and experienced leaders, to help them make sense of the confusing mess that can be generational differences.
In this all too brief conversation, Brad shares his insights into these generational differences and how we can lead more effectively by understanding why these differences are true, and by working together to leverage the other generation's strengths.
Brad is also a former stand-up comic, so you'll definitely laugh at some of the things we share.
Brad Szollose is the *award-winning, international bestselling author of Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia which explores the subject of new leadership styles – mainly how to get the tech-savvy Generation X & Y and analog driven Baby Boomers working together.
But Seriously, WHO is this Guy, and WHY should I listen to him?
Brad Szollose is a business consultant and keynote speaker who helps smart companies understand how much technology has transformed corporate culture and behavior…especially the behavior of Generation Y Millennials, and how that impacts management, interaction and expectations in The Information Age.
But this is not based on management theory: With a 30 year career as an entrepreneur he knows firsthand what it’s like to grow a company from a simple idea in a coffee shop (without any startup capital), to an internationally recognized brand.
Brad is a former C-Level Dot Com Executive who went from entrepreneur to IPO in 3 yrs—co-founding K2 Design, the very first Dot Com Agency to go public on NASDAQ. His company experienced 425% hyper-growth for 5 straight years, expanded from 2 business partners to 4 with 60+ employees and offices worldwide. At its height, K2 was valuated at over $26 million. His results only management model (ROWE) was applied to the first wave of young Generation Y workers producing great results—winning K2 the Arthur Andersen NY Enterprise Award for Best Practices in Fostering Innovation.
