This week we talked about why multi-generational leadership activism is in. We were joined by Jon Mertz, thought leader, author and a Leader to Watch in 2015 by the American Management Association; and Danny Rubin, Millennial communications expert and author.
Regardless of pop culture wisdom, every generation wants to change the world, and millennials are no exception. But every new generation’s flaws are also stereotyped and criticized by the mainstream media, to the point where it’s non-productive.
What if these very criticisms were the foundation for refreshing new leadership? The good news is they can be, if mentored and nurtured accordingly.
In fact, this isn’t the age to just mentor millennials. We can learn better ways to grow our own talent and leadership skills from different generations. Engagement is out. Activism is in.
A1: Younger ppl are more collaborative in their leadership. Younger ppl don't seem to let the "Title" run their career. #Tchat

The new generation grew up immersed in social – consultative leadership should come naturally #TChat

A1: We can only value millennials if we stop putting them all in the same bucket because of a generational cohort. #TChat
