Episode 346 - Leadership Lessons Applied to 3 Generations of the Family. Grandparenting 101 with Richard Eyre
If you have to think about your primary focus, would you say it's your achievements or your relationships? Do you spend most of your time, thinking of new strategies and business plans or nurturing personal relationships with your loved ones? Although we all crave recognition, success, and money to provide a comfortable life for our families, none of that would mean anything if we don't have a meaningful relationship with them. In this episode, Rick Eyre, the first-ever guest on this podcast, revisits us to share another set of golden nuggets, this time about grandparenting and relationship building. Rick is a best-selling author, podcast host, facilitator, and speaker. He and his wife Linda are two of the most popular speakers in the world on parenting and families. They've been featured in virtually every popular talk show in the US, including the Today Show, Prime Time Live, 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, and Oprah, to name a few. We explore the importance of building tight relationships between the three generations of a family and how grandparents can gain a relevant role in their grandchildren's lives. Rick shares details of why he got into writing and teaching about grandparenting, the unexpectedly massive response he and his wife got to their courses, and some fun memories from those events. Rick also explains how most of his teachings about grandparenting apply to leadership and team building, and much more. Tune in to Episode 346 to learn more about the value of getting three generations closer and working as a solid unit, and find the balance between family and work.
