#100 | How can a shared purpose become the bridge between the generations?
Nov 25th, 2019 by Jason Lewis
Kay describes leadership transition and the five generations in our workplace as her favorite topic of conversation. What I most appreciated about our conversation was that she patiently kept up with my questions, despite my being choppy at times, and she allowed me to contemplate some observations about myself that relate to my own biases and assumptions about particular generations.
As a facilitator of meaningful conversations between different groups, Kay has discovered that rather than holding our differences against each other, and allowing it to become a place for confusion and misunderstanding, let’s see ourselves as individuals with unique strengths that we can collectively bring to the table. All generations, regardless of their differences, have an innate desire for purpose, and that purpose can become the bridge builder between any two individuals.
