We’re living in a time where five generations bring their distinct worldviews, motivations, and preferred styles to the workplace.
It used to be that a demographic approach to understanding the generations was enough. Now we realize that generalizations lead to stereotypes.
The role of leaders of multi-generational teams is to skillfully work with their inter-generational dynamics. By drawing out and supporting individual contributions and facilitating generational perspective sharing, we support the effectiveness of our teams’ conversations and collaborations. As a recent Harvard Business Review article said, “Every generation has something to teach, and something to learn.”
Our Intergenerational Leadership Café is a custom-designed space where your teams and organization’s members can gather for a couple of hours to explore questions that increase inter-generational trust, collaboration, and mutual mentoring.
Contact us if you’re interested in hosting an online or in-person Intergenerational Leadership Café. We work with groups of 12 or more, and there’s no limit to the size we can accommodate.
