Overview:

Bridging the gap between generations allows ideas and information to flow freely through time. Instead of focusing on the differences between each of the generations, why not focus on our similarities? Why not realize that we are all human, that we rely on each other for our survival? The focus of this webinar is to change the mentality that those individuals who happen to be more advanced in years know best.

Just because someone is older doesn't mean that they are more experienced. The latter is also true, just because someone is younger doesn't mean that they are less experienced.

We each go through life a little differently than the next. A lot of our personal lives may remain just that, personal, however they play a huge role in our professional life. We can experience so much in our lives outside of work and each one of these experiences contribute to our performance, even on a subconscious level. Those people just entering the work force may have lead completely different lives than what you have or what was deemed normal to have had.

Once we are able to align ourselves with this, once we are able to overcome the preconceived notions that younger people are less capable because we have less experience, then we can see steady growth. Age is but a number. It bears no actual weight on individual life experience other than the aging process. It is no longer fair to assume that any person of any age has accomplished any particular goal.

The daily race we run called life is a constant test of self. Along the way we meet others that are there to support us and others that try to break us down. By understanding that, we learn to navigate ourselves better. As you begin to navigate your life better you begin to find holes that need to be filled so that you can raise your bar. As you raise your bar, you create an environment where others can flourish. This brings mutual respect since all parties can benefit. We begin to create a beautiful ecosystem where we are all connected and productivity thrives.

This is a result from focusing on how we are similar. This comes from an understanding of how we are different. This is about an acceptance of self and of others. If we learn to listen to each other and have a full conversation we can learn to bridge the gaps we see across generations. We can break those silos and build fantastic stories with thousands of years of experience behind them.

Why should you Attend: There is gray area where we assume that with age comes authority and leadership. Perhaps this is because we assume that the older person has more life experience. I believe that they may have had more time on this planet to experience life but not that they necessarily 'lived' more. Age does not have to do with experience.

Life happens in moments and those moments grow to define us. Each of us at our own pace in this walk. I believe that authority and leadership should be earned and that can be done at any point in our lives.

One way to develop ourselves, at any age, is through mentoring. The role of a mentor is a powerful one. Mentors hold incredible amounts of influence in the lives of many. Mentors can be found in many different forms, including people across generations.

They have the ability to guide us through rocky waters but only if we choose so. We have to be able to respect the person that mentors us in order to see any positive results. Without mutual respect between individuals you won't create the ideal environment for your flowers to blossom.

Late Boomers, GenXers, and Millennials have many similarities in terms of income and wealth. We share similar employment rates and status when they were the same age. Millennials aren't so different than GenXers or Late Boomers at the same age. Why do we see a disconnect between generations? Is it just elapsed time? It is a lack of mutual respect? Maybe neither side really cares about what they are doing? Or so it may seem? By attending this webinar you will learn new ways to bridge gaps that may be restricting productivity. You will receive tips that'll provide a stronger support system to ensure sustainable growth.

Instructor:

Louis Engel was born and raised on a small island in the Caribbean called St. Maarten. His parents thought it was in his best interest if they sent him to boarding school in Canada. He completed the majority of high school at a boarding school in Ontario and then went on to pursue an Honors Specialization in Biology which was completed in 2013. After struggling to find a job his my field, which was required for permanent residency, he decided that his chances would improve if he was to receive further schooling. Louis enrolled in an online Clinical Trials Management program in 2015 and completed an internship in the field in 2016.

The internship lead to a part-time opportunity with the same company which quickly turned into a full-time opportunity. Louis began his internship in the Clinical Operations department and learned that, plain and simple, it was not for him. He decided to knock on some doors and search for other opportunities within the same company. This landed him in the Sales & Marketing department. Louis began travelling around North America to attend conferences as a representative for the company. One Wednesday night in October 2016 he received news that he was no longer legally allowed to work in Canada anymore. Louis finished his regular day at the office and then hurried over to his second job as a bar tender. Once that shift came to an end he decided to catch up on his emails in preparation for the rest of the week. One of those emails read that his application to remain in Canada had been denied. Louis had to quit both jobs immediately to not risk being deported.

He left Canada in December 2016. He didn’t know what to do. Louis still had his whole life set up there. At that point, Ontario was home for 10 years and it wasn’t time for it to be part of his past. While he was in St. Maarten he completed one last application, one last opportunity to make sure that his time in Canada wasn’t wasted. It worked. Louis made it back but under strict conditions. This permit was good for one year. Enough time for him to meet the remaining requirements necessary for permanent residency.

Louis submitted his application for permanent residency in March 2018 and returned, once again, to St. Maarten for an indefinite amount of time while he waited. After five months of patience he was rewarded with permanent residency. Canada saw his return in August 2018, but not the pharmaceutical industry. He returned to working as a server and bar tender to earn an income after being unemployed for 5 months and battling with lawyer fees. While he worked that job he also prepared his next move. Louis wasn’t sure what it was going to be but he knew that he was not going to get stuck in the food service industry.

His experiences have lead him to develop a passion for overcoming challenge, embracing change, and exploring curiosity. Louis followed his passion then and it continues to lead him today. He allows his curiosity to help him find a way to overcome challenges. Overcoming challenge often requires change. Change can be a result of a new environment or from a new way of thinking. His struggles have built him to become resilient. Louis looks forward to difficult experiences, it is when the greatest lessons are learned.

With his passion came a burning desire to share what he has with as many people as he can, his perspective as a Millenial. This thought lead to him quitting his job as a bar tender and pursuing a career as a speaker. He focuses on sparking curiosity in the individual. Louis’ goal is to inspire personal development and he does so by carrying an inspirational message through storytelling
