Join us for an hour and a half of presentation and Q/A presented by Mr. Andrew McPeak with Growing Leaders.The Pandemic Population: Eight Strategies to Help Generation Z Rediscover Hope After Coronavirus is a timely treatment on how to lead youth in a crisis. Students today are being influenced by a 24/7 news cycle covering a pandemic, protests, and panic attacks that will either make them wither or will make them stronger than ever. Generation Z is graduating into a VUCA world: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. They’re already the most anxious generation in modern history and now they live in a most anxious time. This book provides best practices for leading in a crisis as well as creative ideas to sustain morale and collaboration among students.
