Be the leader that propels ahead ...
not the one that lags behind
There's a career-shifting, generational workforce transition happening right now ... in a business environment that is consistently ambiguous, fast-changing + high-intensity (aka VUCA).
GenXers are being called to ditch the most culturally toxic Baby Boomer ways + lead with more self-awareness, emotional intelligence, intention, consensus building + authenticity than ever before.
Millennials are being called to embrace the most positive aspects of traditional leadership, while scaling up on interpersonal skills, business acumen + decision-making.
The leaders who emerge from this workforce transition (no matter their generation) will be the ones who have embraced these generational shifts and who have found the balance between leadership business skills + leadership human skills.
Make sure you are not left behind -- the business world needs the whole you!
