About This Episode

Dr. Bruce Colston was a personal friend of Dr. Glenn’s, a protégé, and eventually a Master Teacher of Dr. Glenn’s work.

Dr. Glenn served four Presidential administrations and won many honors during his career for his skillful synthesis of data, in which he uncovered the reasons why America’s high school graduates, in 1963, turned achievement downward for the first time in American history.

His analysis of nearly 3000 studies of human behavior and interaction served as a foundation for his popular books to follow, including “7 Strategies for Raising Capable Students” and “Raising Self-Reliant Children in a Self-Indulgent World,” as well as the follow-up training series, were a huge success and a monumental achievement.

Those are what inspired us at Birth2Work to continue to acknowledge and acclaim his work and adopt his principles for raising capable kids along the way. Dr. Glenn is also the gentleman to whom B2W co-founder Rick Stephens and I dedicated our book, The System: Igniting the Soul of Commerce. Dr. Glenn’s books are exactly what people who work with young people and teens need right now, and we are honored to further share and discuss his work with Bruce.
