Herbert Hoover famously said:
Children are our most valuable resource.
It is true. They will invent. They will discover. They will astonish.
The rising generation, as with every generation before it, is blessed with a youthful capacity for blue-sky thinking, and an eternal wellspring of creativity and invention. Indeed, what encouraging parent has not conveyed the age-old maxim “if you can imagine it, you can achieve it” to their progeny? Leaders must take this aphorism to heart with an open-minded, long-term and strategic view. Both generations must reflect upon not only the far-distant futures of their enterprises, but how they will adapt, what role family members will play, and crucially, what the consequences of their choices will be. Tomorrow’s world will be a different place.
How different depends on the inter-generational capacity to Dream, Dare and Do.
