  • Wayne Barnard, PhD
    Director of Student Ministries – International Justice Mission

    This book is a clarion call to adult leaders to think critically about the environment in which a new generation is developing, to create teachable moments for engaging these students, and to courageously call them to leadership—living beyond themselves and for the common good. For more than a decade, Tim Elmore’s relevant, well-researched concepts on leadership, and his practical and sustainable solutions for influencing the next generation, were a tremendous resource for me as a student affairs leader working to develop students.

  • Jo Kirchner
    President and CEO – Primrose School Franchising Company

    Our children are our future leaders. My wish is that all children would be provided a strong foundation so they could grow up to be responsible adults who love who they are, care for and respect others and enjoy what they do. This journey starts with helping children develop good character. I see so many parents starting well with their children, but as they grow, some begin to play defense, rather than offense. Tim Elmore helps us understand what young people need today—from parents, teachers, coaches and employers. This book will reveal what we must avoid and what we must embrace to enable our children to become little leaders that mature into adult leaders.

  • Travis Holdman
    Indiana State Senator

    Dr. Elmore warns of a ‘stall’ that has occurred with this emerging generation. He lays out the causes for the ‘stall’ that should alarm us all. Hope is not lost. We see in Generation iY, well articulated, in Elmore style, specific measures we, as parents, teachers, coaches, pastors and employers, can implement to save this generation’s future – our future!

  • Dr. Mimi Barnard
    Vice President for Professional Development and Research – Council for Christian Colleges & Universities

    Tim’s mission has always been to grow leaders—when I was on a campus, I often called on him to facilitate leadership development training for my staff, so that they could provide the appropriate balance of challenge and support for university students. In my role with the CCCU, I’m on campuses throughout the nation, meeting leaders who are tasked with developing and educating the iY Generation—this book is a terrific resource for those interested in equipping this generation of students to their fullest potential.
