Organizational leaders are scrambling to find solutions to what has become the world’s most challenging issue—how to effectively integrate the multiple generations in the workplace to arrive at results. The digital world is changing the way people think, work, learn, shop, and live.

Never has diversity been as important to organizational success as it is now, and will become even more so over the next decade. Today’s workplace is becoming increasingly heterogeneous, a trend that will continue to evolve. Bridging the generational gap between cohorts is vital if organizations are to thrive in the future. Yet few organizational leaders look at generational preferences when developing diversity strategies.

Leadership preferences have changed. No longer is fear-based, authoritative, machine-age leadership tolerated.  People are your most valuable assets, not machines.  Success depends on organizational leaders’ ability to inspire people to the highest level of performance.  Yet most leaders today are still in machines-and-gears mode.

Furthermore, investors are looking for organizations with people-oriented cultures paired with strong accountabilities—such organizations can arrive at sustainable shareholder value more easily. Attracting and retaining top talent has become a critical issue with the generational issues, and declining birth rates has resulted in fewer candidates in the job market.  

This dilemma is not confined just to the workplace—it impacts all organizations, including government, education, places of worship, non-profits, communities, and families. 

This book is for anyone who wishes to raise self-awareness, and improve relationships with all people.   It is especially impactful for those who wish to become the leaders today’s world demands—leaders who strive to maximize peoples’ potential—help people succeed, and lead their organizations to success.

4 Generations at Work:

A Case for Empowerment.
