9:15am Management Skills for Next Gen Leaders
Generations misunderstanding each other is not a new problem. In fact, every generation thinks the one that comes after them is less competent, more entitled or harder to work with in the office. The good news is that no one generation is broken. According to a 2019 study, multi-generational teams with a range of 25 years or more from youngest to oldest meet or exceed expectations 73% of the time. Those with a narrow range of less than 10 years did so only 35% of the time. The future of work is
truly about inclusion. Leadership acumen is measured by a person’s ability to transform diverse groups of humans into cohesive, effective and compassionate teams.
