Building High-Performance Relationships Across Generations

Generational differences, especially among leaders, are one of the most persistent challenges facing organizations today. With ever-widening gaps among leaders across an organization, the ability to build bridges between leaders of generational differences has never been more essential.

Bridging the Leadership Divide is a half-day to two-day workshop that helps leaders of multiple generations to remove the inherent barriers to productive relationships between incumbent and emerging leaders. While there is much information available on generational demographics, the focus of this program is on the relational aspects of generational dynamics. 

Author Ron Carucci and his colleagues identify six patterns that distinguish distressed relationships from powerful relationships:

  •       Rank
  •       Meaningful Conversation
  •       Inclusion and Engagement
  •       Dreaming
  •       Generosity
  •       Gratitude

Through case studies, role plays, journaling exercises, development plans, and action planning tools, Bridging the Leadership Divide explains and assesses these patterns, and explores how they either promote or hinder cross-generational relationships.
