Leadership for a Multi-Generational Workforce
Employees are more technologically savvy, have higher demands, and seek individual recognition — and that is from the Baby Boomers!
The landscape of workforce interaction, information exchange, and leadership expectations have dramatically shifted in just the last few years. Whether you call it the Internet effect, the global business impact, or challenging economic times, there is no doubt that leadership for a multi-generational workforce requires a different skill set to achieve maximum performance in the workforce.
Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Generation Y employees are all looking for leaders they can trust and believe in. Boomers seek consistency, Gen X-ers want a reason to stay, and Gen Y-ers demand immediate career opportunities.
