Managing a Multigenerational Workforce

In recent years, we have witnessed a fundamental shift in organizations across the globe. The way we work is changing. Our business environments are evolving rapidly as four generations collide in the workplace- driving the need for an overhaul of traditional leadership styles. Holly Green, CEO of the Human Factor, describes the old leadership style as one of “administrating and directing” versus today’s model of “guiding and inspiring.”

The leaders who adapt quickly to the management style this workforce demands will be able to harness their diversity to create hyper-functioning teams that fuel organizational innovation and growth.
