The crisis at the border; the appalling conditions at the migrant detention camps; DOJ lawyer, Sarah Fabian, stating that children being detained at the camps don’t need beds, blankets, soap or toothbrushes; Trump’s comments regarding the latest sexual assault (rape) allegation against him by E. Jean Carroll (“I have no idea who this woman is” and “She’s not my type”); Trump’s direct statements that he would accept dirt on a political opponent from a foreign government; Russian interference in the 2016 election; Trump’s dangerous flip-flop comments regarding Iran; Trump’s inability to ever admit responsibility for his actions and words and his inability to learn from his mistakes (which he says he never makes because he’s a “very stable genius”); Trump thanking himself for the recent stock market rally; and all those fanatical people(?) who are so devoted to Trump who can’t tell right from wrong and don’t even care! ‘These are a few of our favorite things’ to be outraged about and more!!
JOIN Barb and John as they discuss Outraged!
Joining the show during the second hour is the Founder and CEO of TFS, award-winning author Mark C. Perna. Mark will be discussing his book, Answering Why: Unleashing Passion, Purpose, and Performance in younger Generations.
Our one-size-fits-all approach that promotes college as the single path to a rewarding profession is putting both the economy and an entire generation at risk. Sending young people off to study for degrees without regard for whether they’re actually trained for a viable career has resulted in an alarming skills gap in today’s workforce.
We’re pushing young people to obtain college degrees, yet only 1 in 5 students feel prepared for today’s job market. We’re saddling them with enormous college debt for degrees that may not pay off. Intentional career planning early on will allow young people to choose advanced education purposefully, giving them a better chance of reaching their goals.
Mark C. Perna is the founder and CEO of TFS. He coaches educational organizations and businesses to recruit and retain the younger generations in today’s unique inter-generational workforce.
Mark presents a new paradigm that parents, teachers and employers can implement to answer young people’s “why?” and steer them toward success. During the interview, Mark will address such topics as (1) Why it’s critical to prioritize career exploration as part of the K-12 system; (2) Why the skills gap exists and continues to grow wider, and how to help close it by overcoming our biases and misconceptions about young people; (3) How to help young people rethink what they want from their lives and careers; (4) What parents, educators and employers can do to unlock the full potential of the Why Generation; and (5) How businesses can impact employees’ development in ways that attract and retain them as motivated and productive workers.
Mark C. Perna is the author of the award-winning bestseller: Answering Why: Unleashing Passion, Purpose, and Performance in Younger Generations that Publisher’s Weekly calls “perceptive…reasonable and thought-provoking.” Mark is the Founder and CEO of TFS and has over 20 years of experience in coaching educational organizations and businesses on today’s unique inter-generational workforce and the hiring, training and retention of the newest generations.
