Unleashing Passion, Purpose, and Performance in Younger Generations

Purpose-driven education and training are the heartbeat of an inspiring call to action. Though they’re often painted in a negative light, today’s young people have incredible potential to change the world. We just have to unleash it. Students who experience education with purpose can then pursue employment with passion—which they need now more than ever. As the skills gap widens, we must tap into the vast creativity, intelligence, and potential of the next generation. Mark delivers key insights on how they think, what makes them tick, and how they make decisions. Mark will show you how to connect, engage, and answer why to inspire their greatest effort. With clear action steps you can implement immediately both in your home and professional life, Mark’s message will help you motivate young people, move them from static purpose to active purpose mode, and empower them to achieve at higher levels. Mark C. Perna is the founder and CEO of TFS Results, a full-service strategic consulting firm at the forefront of the national paradigm shift in education and workforce development.
