We are a small business, with our team of 2 being born in different generations (late Baby Boomer and early Gen X). We were both brought up by the Traditionalist Generation and, being close in years, have very similar views in our business approach.
We are also lucky to work with many Companies and across many different generations. As their business coaches, we can install into them the habits we have learnt over many years of corporate life and the younger business leaders are teaching us business hacks that their generation take for granted.
One of the Companies we are grateful to work with are a UK based start-up Company called Upward Fitness & Wellbeing. Both owners fall into the Gen Y / Millennial generation and it’s fair to say that there has been learning from both sides. We act as their business coach and they act as our personal fitness trainer and nutritional coaches. We manage this business relationship whilst being based in 2 different countries, over 7,700 km apart, different time zones and working weeks!
So how do we manage the joint coaching relationship? Let us share how we do this and how this relates to our personal education from the “millennial kids”!
