Bright, funny and delightfully obnoxious, Meagan Johnson is known as the Generational Humorist! In a recent survey of freshman students, 1 out of 10 freshmen had parents who called them every day or every other day. A recent online poll found that 4 out of 10 college students (38%) had parents who had spoken with or attended meetings with their academic advisors. Almost a third (31%) had parents who had called professors to complain about a grade. One in 4 described their parents as "overly involved." Yet 65% of these college kids still asked for their parents' advice on academic and career paths. Are college kids sending their parents a mixed message? My guests will share how to strike a balance between hovering and guiding in this entertaining interview. Meagan Johnson and her father, Larry Johnson, are the Johnson Training Group, whose clients include several government agencies, American Express, Harley-Davidson, Nordstrom, Dairy Queen, and many others. They are leading experts on managing multigenerational workplaces, and are coauthors of "Generations, Inc.": From Boomers to Linksters--Managing the Friction Between Generations at Work.
