We are excited to announce that Dr. Bill Thomas and the Center for Growing and Becoming have committed to continuing the Age of Disruption Tour in 2016 and 2017!
I am getting older and the older version of me really is demonstrably better than the younger version of me. How is this possible?
How do we challenge a Youth/Age orthodoxy that is so entrenched and so powerful and which remains, for all practical purposes, invisible?
Why are there these special, all-cringeworthy words for getting older? Why aren’t I the same person, granted, in somewhat different form?
The Hippie movement’s historically unprecedented dismissal of adulthood was its most sterling achievement and its most unforgivable sin.
Traveling in my usual circles I don’t often encounter people who make their living provoking fears about aging. Recently however, one such merchant of fear did catch my attention.
Over the next few weeks I will be exploring a few of aging’s most important superpowers. Yeah, you read that right– superpowers.
We’ve performed “Life’s Most Dangerous Game” in 15 cities. We’ve got a pretty good handle on what we’re doing by now, except for one thing–what do we call it?
The coolest part of managing Dr. Bill Thomas’ Age of Disruption Tour is getting to take the pulse of 30 different communities nationwide and feel their excitement and learn about their efforts to change aging.
What I love about this age-inspired insight is that it gives me a vastly greater capacity for valuing relationship over performance and placing people ahead of tasks.
If we are to discover who we truly are, during this Great Age of Disruption, we must all stand toe-to-toe with our demons – imagined or real.
As I set off on the bus tonight for the first five-day swing of the Age of Disruption Tour I’d like to share a vision for making this an “open source” tour.
