Episode 090: Seth Mattison – Generational Shifts: Why Some Millennials Fail

Seth Mattison is an incredible learning leader.  I am so happy that Ryan Estis introduced us.  He’s become a fast friend and is one of the reasons why I love doing this so.  Seth is deeply interested in people and living lives of meaning and purpose.  Seth brings massive energy and action oriented advice on how we can improve ourselves as leaders.  We are extremely fortunate to have Seth share his knowledge with us, the loyal listeners of The Learning Leader Show.

Seth advises world-leading brands and organizations on the key shifts happening around talent management, change and innovation, leadership, and the future of work.  He started formally studying workforce trends and generational dynamics 10 years ago and has spent a lifetime learning about how each generation’s story shapes their view of the world and trends impacting our society.
