Leadership Through the Generational Lens –
Building Cross-Generational Trust, Relationships and Collaboration
There is an old saying that people resemble their times more than they resemble their parents. In the 1970s, Morris Massey said what we are now is where we were when. In his programs and writing he posited that that which occurred during our adolescence greatly influenced our current work and relationship behaviors.
If we accept these premises, leading cross-generationally means we need to understand that which has influenced the beliefs and actions of each generation. It also means that the leaders of each generation will have been shaped by the unique experiences of their generation.
- Consider what each generation expects and needs from leadership.
- Identify what causes a leader to disconnect from members of each generation.
- Recognize how leadership will change as new generations enter the leadership ranks.
- Determine the steps you need to take to prepare your organization for the changing leadership landscape.
