Summary: We need to have a generational understanding. I can help.
What is a generation? Typically, “a generation” consists of those born within a similar time frame who share life experiences (like pop culture, world events, economic conditions, natural disasters, and technology). We are weeks removed from the anniversary of 9/11, a significant life event that dramatically influenced multiple generations, so I thought it would be appropriate to write a series of several different generation-related topics. Why is a generational understanding important? In the workplace, four generations may work alongside each other: the Silent Generation (1925-1945), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1981), and Millennials (1982-1999). This series will focus on each generation from several perspectives: definitions; teaching; leading; etc. Hopefully the topics will be helpful for you (and your organization). If you are interested, please contact me to schedule seminars or workshops related to reaching, leading, and understanding different generations in the workplace.
