The “Remixer of the Month” is a representative of the concept of The Remix, the topic of my next book, to be published by HarperCollins in Spring 2019.
As I define it, to “remix” is to take a best practice of one generation and “mix” it in some way with the best practice of another generation (or several!) to achieve a positive end result. Although most of my focus is on the business world, remixing can take place in any realm, from marketing to politics to sports to parenting and beyond.
As a child of the ‘80s in the New York metro area (I grew up in Norwalk, CT), I’ve been a lifelong Mets baseball fan. While some seasons (2017) have been harder than others (1986), I love the team, and my husband and I (he’s also a Mets fan, of course) couldn’t be having more fun passing the passion on to our daughter Chloe (pictured).
What does my family’s baseball fandom have to do with the multigenerational workplace, you might be wondering? Well, this year the Mets have a new manager, Mickey Callaway, who has attracted some attention. Besides the fact that the Mets had their best season start in the 57-year history of the team, Callaway has been noticed for his leadership style off the field as well.
