The Digital Age has created a world without frontiers, an unbounded universe where there is no such thing as too much information. Clients, and indeed coaches themselves, are struggling with the limits of time, energy, knowledge and belief. As technological innovation multiplies we are all required to upgrade our operating systems, to become ever more efficient human beings. The rising generation of “digital natives” (Prensky 2001) – Generation Y – do indeed have distinctly different behaviours, values and attitudes from previous generations. In particular, they are detached from institutions and particularly well networked with friends. The world has changed and, as the world shifts, so too must our paradigms.
