The Fourth Turning

Twenty years after its original publication date, The Fourth Turning, by William Strauss and Neil Howe, is undergoing a massive resurgence in sales. Historian Richard Kaiser calls it a prophecy book and the Wall Street Journal says, it is “One of the best efforts to give us an integrated vision of where we are going.” The book is especially relevant in this moment of our history, that Strauss and Howe calls the Crisis period, that began with the financial meltdown of 2008, and is likely to continue through mid-2020’s…

Last year, I wrote an article for Leader’s Edge Magazine, and I am booking speeches focused on why we are in a Fourth Turning crisis period in U.S. history right now — and what it means for your business.

I look forward to hearing from you and speaking to your team about what this how this era will affect your organization.
