Author/Artist Review

Author: Tim Elmore

    Tell us a little about yourself.  In 2003, I founded Growing Leaders, a non-profit organization dedicated to developing emerging leaders. Through Growing Leaders, my team and I provide churches, schools, universities, ministries, and corporations with the tools they need to help develop young leaders who can impact and transform society. Before Growing Leaders, I had the privilege of working with Dr. John C. Maxwell for more than 25 years. I live with my family in Atlanta, GA and have two Generation Y kids of my own…so I can write from first-hand experience!

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Over the last few years, I’ve had the opportunity to speak at churches and schools across the country and around the world. I began to notice a similar trend with students who appeared mature but lacked the real world experience to successfully enter adulthood.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  After people read my last book “Generation iY: Our Last Chance to Save Their Future”, people asked for more advice on how to respond to what we’re seeing happen to this generation of students. “Artificial Maturity” offers loads of practical suggestions for parents, coaches, teachers and youth workers to lead students to authentic maturity. It moves beyond just identifying the problem to providing solutions.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  While researching this book, it was eye opening to see how ill prepared many students are for the real world. When I wrote “Generation iY”, studies showed that about 60% of college students move back home after graduation. In the past 18 months, it has climbed to 80% of college graduates returning home to live with their parents. I also met and talked with dozens of faculty members, coaches, youth pastors, and parents during the writing of this book. Over and over, I heard the same themes: students had knowledge like never before, but it didn’t necessarily translate into life skills. I feel a strong sense of urgency and passion to reverse this trend and equip students to become adults.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I spent over 25 years working alongside John Maxwell and much from him. Leonard Sweet is a constant source of challenge and encouragement. I read at least two books a month and favorite authors include Jim Collins, Daniel Pink, Seth Godin, and Malcolm Gladwell. Donald Miller also inspires me.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I blog daily and each blog post is specifically about leading the next generation. You can also follow me on Twitter (@TimElmore).
