Leading today's students often feels like being in a new country. The population in this new land has different attitudes (many entitled and narcissistic) and speaks a different language (emojis and social media). Attention spans are six to eight seconds. They multi-task on five screens. They often possess multiple personas on social media platforms. Understanding and connecting with this generation is often times frustrating and draining. The old maps that helped adults navigate students through adolescence are now producing graduates who move back home, are afraid to take healthy risks, and are unwilling to start at the bottom of a career path. We're in new territory. We need new strategies on how to navigate new land...to march off our old maps and create new ones. That is what this book is all about. From decades of research and hands-on experience, Dr. Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak collate their conclusions into one resource. In Marching Off the Map, they share practical, research-based solutions that help adults: ? Inspire students to own their education and their future ? Lead students from an attitude of apathy to one of passion through metacognition ? Enable students to push back from the constant digital distractions and practice mindfulness ? Raise kids who make healthy progress, both emotionally and intellectually, through their teenage years ? Give students the tools to handle the complexities of an ever-changing world ? Understand and practically apply the latest research on Generation Z ? Leverage what is cultural to instill in teens the wisdom and advice you know they need to succeed in any stage of life. This version does not come with the Marching Off the Map Travel Guide. To order the guide, please visit GrowingLeaders.com/store

Not intending to surrender to circumstance, Dr. Elmore compares and contrasts old and new paradigms for training, teaching, coaching and preparing the emerging generation to thrive, not just survive. Giving handles to leadership strategies, Dr. Elmore’s prescriptions for connecting students to a bigger story and Andrew McPeak’s insightful interviews and examples of map makers offers a sextant for all navigating new horizons to equip students.
Providing practical tips on how to Motivate Apathetic Students and Understanding the Power of Story and Metaphor are just some of the gold ingot topics shared from the transformative treasury of Dr. Elmore’s Habitude series.
Admonition to not neglect facing two of the biggest problems concerning generations Y and Z, namely anxiety and postmodern amorality not only illuminates the situation but also offers insightful solutions.
Part of the genius of the book is the encouragement to pause reading and start charting our own map. There is a companion ”Interactive Travel Guide” for processing the progressive revelation in the chapters. Creatively capturing and assessing my thoughts and attitudes while brainstorming possibilities helped me to start to connect the landmarks of a swiftly changing new landscape.
I am so thankful for Dr. Tim Elmore and Andrew McPeak for their tireless labors to bring every parent and practitioner scholarly researched writing for navigating a brand new world. I cannot recommend more highly the wisdom and course of action charted in this book.
