An outstanding teacher. A committed coach. A listening parent. A diligent Sunday-School teacher. An interested aunt. An encouraging boss. Daniel Egeler reminds me of some of these important people who mentored me as a young person. Egeler himself is a missionary kid, a soccer coach, a parent and a teacher turned educational consultant. As suggested by the book's title, he brings two passions together in Mentoring Millenials.
Firstly, he is passionate about understanding and celebrating the potential of what is being called the "millennial generation". This emerging group of young adults born since 1982 differ significantly from previous Gen-X and boomer generations. They display a relative optimism, a preference for boundaries and rules, healthy attitudes toward education, a desire for tradition and values, intercultural sensitivity, and concerns for the environment and religious tolerance. Perhaps most significantly they are eager to commit wholeheartedly to a cause greater than just themselves. Millenials are challenging assumptions about how "postmodern" young people are supposed to behave. The bad news is they sometimes struggle with loneliness and loss of moral criteria, but in the face of a September-11 world they want to make the world a better place. Millenials have the potential to be a "hero generation".
Secondly, Egeler is passionate about mentoring. He draws on Bobby Clinton's mentoring models describing different levels of intentionality and intensity, from historical examples and occasional counselling, through to intensive spiritual guidance and coaching. I am convinced mentoring is a key leverage point for leadership development. Egeler describes it as a linchpin between generations. The value of the book is not just in its generational analysis, biblical examples, inspiring stories or easy reading, but catching Egeler's heart for having "mentor's eyes" to understand, take an interest in, cheer on, share wisdom with and learn from the next generation.
