Mind the gap!

Title: Mind the gap
Authors: Graeme Codrington and Sue Grant-Marshall
Publisher: Penguin Global
Language: English
Book: Paperback, 237 pages
ISBN: 978-0143-0244-53

This book is for you if you want to know why your 18-year-old son isn't interested in being a doctor-he wants to save the whales, or why your grandfather gives you Big Band CDs for your birthday. This book is also for you if your secretary knows more than you do or your grandson calls you Peter instead of granddad. In short, this book aims to promote understanding between the generations. This is vitally important in our most defining relationships-those between parents and children. We are so influenced by our parents that understanding them will help us to understand why they influence us-and, therefore, help us to better understand ourselves.

What can be learned from this book can be extended to all other relationships-with bosses, teachers, grandparents and so on. Once you understand their 'generational' behaviour, you'll have a clearer picture of why they are like they are.

So, chuck the tranquillisers and read this book. Life will never be the same again!

Cover van Mind over Money

Mind over Money

Title: Mind Over Money
Authors: Graeme Codrington, Louis Fourie and Sue Grant-Marshall
Publisher: The Penguin Group (SA) (Pty) Ltd
Language: English
Book: Paperback
ISBN: 978-0143-0240-95

"Mind Over Money" is not so much about your money as it is about your mind. It's about your attitude and approach to money. It's not hard to make money if you are careful and sussed - millionaires are two a penny today. But, keeping it is the problem. That's what smart people do. It's what you need to do. Playwright Tennessee Williams said, " You can be young without money but you can't be old without it." Bear this in mind - today's 30 and 40 year olds will live to be 100 years old. Teenagers will crack 120 years easily. That's a long time to live in "retirement". Will your money last? This title is about how to live from womb to tomb in such a way that you can live - and die - in comfort. Along the way the authors show you how to grow up happy; choose the right careers (forget what your parents and teachers say); understand why Baby Boomers can't stop shopping and why the Silent generation saves like mad and always pays cash for everything. You'll appreciate your teenager, your father, your wife, your grandchild's attitudes to money - at last. Best of all - you'll understand yourself!

Conrad Viedge, Director: International Executive Programmes

WITS Business School

"Graeme Codrington has on many occasions presented at the University of Witwatersrand Business School on our executive programmes. His work on Generational Theory has always been exceptionally well received. Based on Graeme's past performance we asked him to present to the international gathering of 53 business Schools that was held in Johannesburg in 2007. Once again his presentation drew accolades from the audience. We believe that Graeme's work on Generational Theory is essential for business leaders, as it allows them to understand and empathise with people from different generations to their own. On a personal note we have always found Graeme to be a pleasure to deal with and a true professional."


Michelle Cowburn, Head of Events & Sponsorships

WesBank

"WesBank is proud to have had the opportunity to work with Graeme Codrington for a number of very high profile conventions hosted or sponsored by ourselves over the past 5 years. Graeme's ability to share his wisdom, knowledge, business understanding and strategies surpasses any speaker we have been exposed to. Furthermore, Graeme and his team have always been open to engaging us on the theme/topic for the event and tailor-making their presentations to suit the very specific industry or market needs. This is hugely beneficial as we know we can rely on him to research and understand our industry comprehensively, before embarking on the presentation compilation. Graeme's professional excellence as well as his entertaining and amusing presentation style, is what sets him apart."
