In his October edition of Automated Buildings, Ken Sinclair provides us with another noteworthy assemblage of industry expertise, insight, and a host of significant interviews and articles. We read Ken’s editorial message as both emphatic and crystal clear: Embrace the change that is coming! The chore of change –to transform our own bulbs — to last longer, to burn brighter, and certainly, to be more energy efficient, lies within our own minds.

Make your plans now! to attend Ken Sinclair’s education sessions at 2018 AHR in Chicago: The Future of Building Automation-“Data at the Open Intelligent Edge,” A panel discussion, “Growing the Open Intelligent Edge,” A panel discussion, “Are Master System Integrators Becoming the New Building Data Architects?,” and A panel discussion, “How will we create value from our new found edge data and bring it back to the hive to discover new ways of providing comfort, health, satisfaction in our buildings?”

Excerpts from Ken’s October editorial: “All of us are engaging in a transformation for the greater good. People-Powered Transformation will occur when and as fast as we allow it, but only when all the people it touches embrace that coming change.

We need to engage with our future. We need to unlearn and rethink our vast experiences. We need to revisit our preconceived notions of what can and cannot be changed. Discovering that your learned experiences are the new variables is very upsetting. It is, in fact, transforming.

We need to unhinge our minds and set new paths, go to lunch with the millennial generation while inviting the Centennials or even younger people that have grown up exclusively in the digital age. We need to learn what we do not know and not just keep repeating to them what we do know. We need to seek those that will lead the transformation of our industry.

Here are the birth years for each generation: Who are you? and Who are your Ken Sinclairmentors and trusted advisors?

Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 and later.
Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 to 1995.
Generation X: Born 1965 to 1976.
Baby Boomers: Born 1946 to 1964.
Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before.

Mentorship, remember, is when a more experienced person helps to guide someone less experienced, and the more experienced person is not necessarily the older one.”
