How to Influence and Lead Across Generations
Stacey Hefner VP Energy Services, Practicing Perfection Institute (PPI)
One of the loudest conversations currently taking place in Leadership and Performance Improvement space is- how to deal with different generations in the workforce, especially Millennials. Thirteen years of PPI experience working with tens of thousands of workers and their leaders around the globe have validated that human beings have a core set of intrinsic characteristics- whether they were born in 1925 or 2001 (or anywhere in between). The Millennial Generation has received so much "˜press' because (1) it is the largest generation ever, and (2) because the "˜worldview' of the members of this generation can be quite different from the Traditionalists, Boomers, and Xers. When focus is placed upon the intrinsic elements of what makes us "human", these differences can be a blessing rather than a curse.
