4 Ways to Help Different Generations Share Wisdom at Work

Harvard Business Review | May 17, 2018
“The world is more malleable than you think and it’s waiting for you to hammer it into shape…That’s what this degree of yours is — a blunt instrument. So, go forth and build something with it.” — Bono, singer for U2, 2004 University of Pennsylvania commencement

Right now, commencement speeches are being given, quoted, lauded and judged. Not every speaker will knock it out of the park, but all have the same goal: to impart some wisdom that will hopefully inspire the next generation.

It’s great to receive sage advice on this banner day signaling “adulthood.” But when else do we hear wise adages, aphorisms, and axioms? Shouldn’t we make more room for such guidance and reflection during our working years?

Respected Title Industry Veteran Janet Minke Retires

Long-time TLTA member and respected industry veteran Janet Minke retired at the end of April after a distinguished career spanning almost 50 years. She was presented a framed Basic Manual by Alliant National Title--where she spent the last 8 years of her career--at a retirement party hosted in her honor.

Janet started as an escrow assistant and worked her way up to hold several key roles with regional and national underwriters. She is widely viewed as an expert on all things title insurance and was a frequent and popular speaker and instructor at TLTA educational programs. She continues to be a friend, mentor and guru to so many.
 
Janet was a TLTA volunteer extraordinaire, serving on or chairing many committees over the years and making contributions too numerous to list. She leaves a true legacy in the vast body of work that she so generously shared through the gift of her time and talent.
 
TLTA is deeply grateful to Janet for all she has done over the years for TLTA and our industry. She will be greatly missed, but we wish her all the best in retirement.

Congratulations and thank you, Janet!
