"Every Generation Needs a New Revolution" by Linda S Thompson
Readers of Linda S. Thompson’s book, Every Generation Needs a New Revolution, will learn about the six generational groups and what make them who and what they are. The generation gap often masquerades as stress and friction between these well-defined groups. In this revealing work, you will also:
Author, speaker and consultant, Linda S. Thompson’s fascination with the multigenerational challenges we all face in today’s society began while she was writing her first book, Planning for Tomorrow, Your Passport to a Confident Future. It was then that she began to understand why we have conflict in our homes, in our offices, and in everything we do throughout our days. That ‘AHA’ moment became her newest book, "Every Generation Needs a New Revolution" Thompson is currently giving workshops on generations, speaks nationally and is considered the go to person on this topic also know as "The New Paradigm for Today’s Workforce."
Linda S. Thompson’s fascination with the multigenerational challenges we all face in today’s society began while she was writing her first book, Planning for Tomorrow, Your Passport to a Confident Future. It was then that she began to understand why we have conflict in our homes, in our offices, and in everything we do throughout our days. That ‘AHA’ moment became one chapter in her book.
That one chapter eventually lead to the book, Every Generation Needs a New Revolution. She created a presentation on the same subject, which became a workshop. The workshop has evolved into a 3-hour seminar, The New Paradigm for Today’s Workforce. During this evolution, Linda spent hours researching the subject and interviewing friends, associates, and the proverbial “man on the street.” Every passing day brings new insight into this tangled web we’re weaving, and adds more material for Linda to share with her audiences and her readers.
Linda S. Thompson is also a specialist in the non-financial side of life planning and elder care. She works with families, singles and career professionals in all stages of life to plan for the unexpected. Linda speaks about the need for a safety net for life and how to plan for life's unexpected mishaps. Linda provides guidelines and options that help people prepare their own safety net. Linda uses humor, along with a good dose of common sense, in helping us understand why having that safety net is more than just “something to think about tomorrow.” Her approach to those not so pleasant and all too often avoided (but necessary) details, will help people understand how they can protect their families and secure their own futures.
As a working caregiver for over ten years, Linda had hands-on experience dealing with the many issues of the aging of America. Sharing her mother's journey toward the inevitable end, Linda learned about the challenges in finding products and services to make her mother's life easier, and how to navigate the maze through the geriatric healthcare system. Linda's caregiving experience led her to write her second book, A Caregiver's Journey, You Are Not Alone.

Caregiving Across the Generations 04/06/12
Linda Thompson, author of Every Generation Needs a New Revolution, also wrote "A Caregiver's Journey, You Are Not Alone." Linda had the privilege of sharing her home with her mother, Fran, for the last 12 years of her life. This 12 year journey together taught Linda so much about caring for someone. Although Fran was never really ill, her needs increased as she neared her 90th birthday, and Linda answered the call. Elder care has become one of her passions and helping other family caregivers experiencing their own caregiving journey understand that there are resources available to help.
At some point in everyone's life, we all are a caregiver to someone. It may be when we are young caring for a sibling, as a young adult caring for our own children, and as we mature, caring for a spouse or an elder parent. How we approach this responsibility will determine how well we manage the emotional and physical challenges. Linda's conversation with CJ and Stephanie will include coping skills, suggestions for finding resources, how to combat that old nemesis called "guilt."
Different Generations Learn Differently Linda S Thompson 02/17/2012
Do different generations learn differently? Various names are used to describe the generation born in the 1980s and 1990s. These include Generation Y, Millennials, Nexters, the Net Generation, and the Digital Generation. This is the generation presently being groomed to replace retiring baby boomers. Today's average college grads have spent less than 5,000 hours of their lives reading, but over 10,000 hours playing video games (not to mention 20,000 hours watching TV). Computer games, email, the Internet, cell phones and instant messaging are integral parts of their lives.
We will be talking with author Linda S Thompson of “Every Generation Needs a New Revolution” and examining the following questions: What similarities and differences exist in these different generations? What do we need to consider when designing instruction to address generational differences? What does existing research say about generational issues and instructional design?

What do we do with those kids? Generations, like people, have personalities, and Millennials – the American teens and twenty-somethings are now entering adulthood, like them or not. Author, national speaker and generational marketing expert Linda S Thompson talks about "Generation Millennial" and how they are changing the way we think about the world. Many say this generation called the Millinials, those born after 1999, are confident, self-expressive, liberal, upbeat and receptive to new ideas and ways of living while others believe they are the end of the world as we know it. A very large generational group is here and forging into American culture. Who are they? What motivates them and how do we get along with them as many of us reach "retirement."
