This new Podcast series – The Seven Questions to Create your Future – has two halves.
In the first, social entrepreneur and author, Trevor Waldock, discusses the questions he believes are critical in helping teens navigate their way through life. Following each episode with Trevor, there will be a follow up episode involving a group of three teenagers debating and chatting about what they have learned from Trevor’s ideas and the impact and influence it has had on them.
So this episode gives you the chance to meet the teenagers and understand their background, thoughts and ambitions before they dive in to the seven questions.
Please bear in mind that we have been busy at Talking Teenage Life completing our GCSE’s and so this episode, along with some others, were recorded prior to us sitting our exams.
How are you feeling about your future? Does it feel overwhelming and uncertain? Do you have any idea where you want to be or what type of person you want to become?
Everyone has these uncertainties, especially during the current state of the world with climate crises, economic difficulty and a war in Europe. Sometimes as teenagers the future is a scary place especially when you have to make decisions at 13/14 and then again at 15/16 for learning subjects even when you have no clue what career path you want to follow. It can feel daunting. It can feel overwhelming. This worry is enlarged when careers guidance at school is next to no help at all.
However, with help of author and social entrepreneur, Trevor Waldock, this new podcast series will provide young people with seven simple questions that will act as a compass, guiding you in the right direction. Giving you tools in order to create a future you can thrive in.
Will these seven questions actually make your future clearer?
Join three other teenagers also answering these questions and following Trevor’s guidance on how to delve deeper into these questions in order to gain the most from them. They are starting the conversations we want to create so that you have access to help and guidance even if it’s not provided by the adults in your life.
What do I love? Where do I want to change the world? What am I actually good at? What do I want to do? Why do I want to do it? What three areas must I focus on? Where am I at right now?
That’s all this series is – answering seven simple questions.
These seven questions could create your future.
These seven questions might challenge you.
These seven questions will empower you to choosing the right path for your future.
Just in the last couple of days, a man, who up until recently was one of the most powerful people in the world, was banned from Facebook for the foreseeable future from inciting riots on Capitol Hill. Donald Trump was one of the most important leaders in the world and now has been removed from all social media. How does the former president of the United States of America, with such huge world influence, seem to lack the ideal leadership traits a good leader should have?
Can we all leader or are there really those who are born leaders? Should leadership skills be taught in schools? Why is there a lack of inspiring political leaders today?
In this podcast episode we delve into trying to answer those questions and have realised that some people can be born leaders but anyone and everyone can be a leader in specific situations. We talk about how we feel leadership should be taught in schools as should other life skills as well. We also chat about how the current political leaders might actually have some good leadership traits but could need to use a few more to keep control over their country.
Hopefully you will be able to learn a lot from my guests as we talk about leadership in this episode and just remember, we are all leaders and have leadership skills.
So, where are all the inspirational leaders of today? They may be all a lot closer than you realised, just look into a mirror…
