Practical Communication Strategies for Working with Emerging Adults

(Audience: Parents, Financial Advisors, Attorneys, CPAs, Senior Service Professionals, Planned Giving Specialists, and Trust Officers)

This presentation examines a provocative new stage of development called “emerging adulthood.” Unique to industrialized societies, emerging adulthood is not merely generational (i.e. Generation X, Y, Z), but represents a significant and permanent shift in the maturation process from adolescence to full adulthood. The presentation offers estate planners, financial advisors, and parents new insights into why the road to adulthood has become so long and frustrating for today’s youth. Using stories and practical examples, David Solie demonstrates how these insights can be used to improve communication and collaboration with emerging adults as they “crossover” from education to the workplace.
