Are you “generation-ready”?
Are you really ready to be an effective leader for the dynamics of a fast-changing workforce? What are the questions you are asking yourself to address the matter at hand? How are you leading a multi-generational work environment? Are you maximizing the potential outcome? It is all about generational leadership: inspiring and engaging a diverse,
These and many more questions are important to address systematically in order to enhance your leadership toolbox and the necessary skills to use those tools effectively. Let me underline the basic facts of (generational) leadership:
The only reason to employ leaders is to create results for the organization.
Leadership is creating results through people
Leadership is situational.
Do you know and clearly recognize your own generational characteristics? Are you a baby boomer, a Xer, GenY or GenZ? How effectively are you dealing with “the Others”? As a little reminder, this is the first time in history leaders have to find ways to effectively lead a workforce built of 4 distinct generational groups! Five if we consider the fact that baby boomers constitute actually two significantly different groups…Latest assessments on a global level indicate that Generation Z (born post-2001) will become the largest population group surpassing GenY by the end of 2019 and beginning to enter the workforce now. Most of us are still grappling with the effort to lead GenY (aka Millennials) more effectively and engage them towards organizational targets.
One of the current key challenges right now is finding the right employees and retaining those we already have in the organization. Let’s make no mistake, employee retention is to a large degree an issue of effective leadership (or lack thereof!).
What is the cost of less than optimal employee retention?
What is the cost of lack of employee engagement?
What is the cost of undeveloped leadership effectiveness?
Reflecting on these questions can open new doors of self-awareness and lead to a different, more productive path.
