I found the boomers!

A few days ago, my question was begging the answer, “Where have all the boomers gone?” in my post regarding the shift in the workforce and knowledge base.  Well, last night I found them!  They were all at The Temptations and Four Tops concert at Chastain Park in Atlanta.  🙂  It made me smile to see all of us boomers singing the songs that we have known for about 40 years and dancing and clapping.  It occurred to me in the middle of “My Girl” that we boomers really do have collaboration in us!  Look at all the great tunes that just get you humming and tapping to the beat AND they cry out to the generations younger than us also.  How many of us know “20 somethings” and younger that love that music that came out of great musical collaboration? AND we do know how to pass it on and have done so successfully.  These bands that have withstood the test of time are not unlike great project teams and corporate environments.  The great ones getting you humming and tapping but yet are always looking forward, wanting to create more, wanting to share with others.  So, let’s take a lesson here!  Working together, creating together, having fun together and passing it on– that is true collaboration!  Happy Collaborating!

    Wow – sounds like a great concert. And what a great lesson you relate to it. It’s so true – I’m especially a big fan of the “passing it on.”

    “Working together, creating together, having fun together and passing it on– that is true collaboration! ”

    Ironically, music can bring us together. No, I don’t like all of my children’s music. As I’ve gotten older, I enjoy listening to the music my parents liked. AND there is music post 1980 I love.

    I went to see Van Halen about 5 weeks ago with my 14 year old son.

    Not only did I see boomers there but their children as well.
