The CounterMentors Podcast
About This Show
FINALLY! A place you can go to get BOTH perspectives from the workplace. Boomer AND Millennial. This show is designed to demonstrate how seasoned leaders can benefit from mentoring AND countermentoring to create a high-performance workplace. We'll help you figure out how to blend the very best of both generations to create better relationships, better results, and a better life altogether.
Join father and son, Kelly and Robby Riggs, as they debate and negotiate the best practices from two generations. Hint: Old guys rule. (Sometimes.)
