Blame My Helicopter Parents
For too many Generation Yers, parents have micromanaged every part of their lives. Having Mom or Dad hover over them, then rush in and “save the day” every time a child encounter stress is probably normal in today’s culture. While in reality, “helicopter parenting,” can range from scheduling a play date for a four year old to writing college admissions essays in the hopes the child gets into the best college. According to wiki.answers.com, a helicopter parent is a term for a person who pays extremely close attention to his or her child or children, particularly at educational institutions. They rush to prevent any harm or failure from befalling them or letting them learn from their own mistakes, sometimes even contrary to the children's wishes. They are so named because, like a helicopter, they hover closely overhead, rarely out of reach whether their children need them or not.

My Time to Lead Series

Making the transition to leader is not easy and it is certainly not natural. Yet most companies invest little to nothing preparing new leaders for their new role. This often results in poor morale and higher turnover since many people just replicate what they have seen in the past. This leadership "gap" is prevalent in most companies. Our new and updated leadership series prepares leaders for this new role. Our 3-day leadership series (non-consecutive days) includes an 86 page work book and a copy of 
"Listen Up Leader". We cover leadership essentials such as:

  • Making the leap from co-worker to supervisor
  • Learn the difference between communication and
    effective communication
  • Differentiate between accountability and blame
  • Set goals to communicate accountability as a supervisor
  • Recognize the essential nature of trust
  • Create an environment that promotes trust in the workplace
Isn't it Time Your Company Prepared its Future Leaders?
