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.)

CM131 Recognition is for Everyone
Boomers often complain about how Millennials always want to be recognized, even if it's just for doing their jobs. But the truth is that everyone values recognition! Appreciation, feedback, and coaching cost you nothing and go a long way toward increasing productivity and satisfaction in the workplace. So, why aren't you doing it?! According to Gallup, "only one in three workers in the U.S. strongly agree that they received recognition or praise for doing good work in the past seven days.” Clearly, we have a recognition deficit, and we need to find ways to engage all employees -- Boomers and Millennials -- in ways that make them feel valued. Join Kelly and Robby as they welcome special guest Jeremy Todd Ford, VP of Talent at United Natural Foods Incorporated, to discuss the next frontier in recognition at work. You can't afford to get this one wrong.
