What We Have To Unlearn to Succeed

Generation Y is about to become old. A new generation is coming. Generation Z. 

And in this new environment, unlearning will be the new path to workplace success. We are in the midst of an education revolution. All the rules we learned about school -- study hard, get good grades, be well-rounded -- no longer apply. In fact, an education like that is a liability.This revolution will spread to work, where all the rules about communication -- use emails, PowerPoint, LinkedIn -- no longer apply. In fact, 80% of Generation Z's communication will be done via video.In this presentation I'll show you how your organization can unlearn old ways of thinking and get ready for Gen Z.
