Being a leader in today’s workplace is more complicated than ever before. Leaders are being required to increase employee diversity, and factors such as rapidly changing technology, an uncertain economy, mergers, closings, and layoffs have made today’s workplace more challenging than ever. Leadership is not necessarily determined by one’s position on an organization chart or what’s on a resume; it is a role played in one’s organization, church and community. With all of these various roles constantly changing, being a leader can simply mean being open to change, being reliable, and being responsible, regardless of age or position on the corporate ladder.
The attitudes of the generations vary from attitudes about loyalty, to staying on the cutting edge of technology; each generation brings unique leadership traits to their workplace. While some organizations are trying to figure out which generation’s way of leading is best, there is no cookie cutter solution. In reality, no generation is better or worse, they’re just different.
The Generational Guru will help your organization identify the obstacles and opportunities for leadership within each generation and understand the potential impact everyone can make as a leader.
