I offer a commentary on what I call 60s2.0 – generations with shared values coming together to create the sort of fundamental change we need in order to improve the daily lives of millions and to solve the enormous problems we’ve created for ourselves.
Life expectancy has grown 30 years in the U.S. since 1900—from 47 to 77. Meanwhile the rapid pace of new technology is changing the nature of work, so that you may struggle to keep up. 40% now have a boss who is younger than they are. After 24 years as CEO, CHIP CONLEY sold Joie de Vivre, the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. Four years later, the young founders of Airbnb hired him as Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy. Reflecting on his four years in that role, Conley proposes a new stage of life – the “Modern Elder” – for people who possess both the wisdom of age and the curiosity of youth, and who are searching for meaning, not retirement. He’s the author of Peak; Emotional Equations; and Wisdom at Work.
In this podcast, I go solo. Rather than interviewing others, I share with you the best of the work I do to help organizations develop more engaging narratives and tell better stories.

June 25th NYTimes headline: “2019 might be the year of the protest” – mass demonstrations in Prague, Hong Kong, Russia, Kazakhstan, and the UK.

And what might that mean for us here in the US where the global climate movement has called for a general strike September 20th? I speak with ERICA CHENOWETH, Professor at Harvard’s Kennedy School and author of WHY CIVIL RESISTANCE WORKS: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict.
