About That Flag On Your Shirt

Generations expert Amy Lynch likes to hang out in public places (like the polls) and observe generational behaviors. Not in a stalker way, in a researcher way.    My friend Mary Katherine Morn posted this photo and its caption on her Facebook page recently.  An activist, visionary, minister and passionate Baby Boomer, she takes obvious pleasure and satisfaction in voting.  She believes it makes a difference.  I admire Mary Katherine immensely--her...

Which Generation Were You Born to Lead?

“Leader” is a loaded word.Each generation defines it differently. If you work with the Silent Generation, the ghost of the “leader as commander” lingers in the air. For Silents, leadership was based on role. In the business world, executives led like generals. If you work in a traditional industry like law, medicine, accounting or government, you'll encounter this leadership model. Tips for Leading in Highly Traditional Settings ... Read More

Generational Intelligence: Your Career Depends on It.

Not long ago I met a dynamic Gen Xer. She is a VP in a C-Suite dominated by Boomers. As a skeptical Xer, she looked at things from a new perspective, consistently asking the hard questions and pushing back against time-worn assumptions. To her, that was part of doing her job. But Boomers in the group saw her as negative. “They used to cringe when I walked in the room,” she told me. “I saw them do it.” Isolated and discounted, she got nowhere with her initiatives. Her...

Millennial Phone Phobia

The CEO was frustrated. "I ask a Millennial to call someone, and they text instead. There’s a difference." She's right. A phone call is the power choice when time is short or stakes are high. We all have to be able to make the call or take the call. Millennials who want to succeed can't afford phone phobia. The CEO’s complaint tripped a memory wire for me. At 28, I became the editor of a magazine. To the people I worked with, I looked like a kid.... Read More

Generations and the Workday. Who owns your time?

Have you seen the new  Hyundai ad  about the guy who (GASP!) leaves work on time?  “When did leaving work on time because an act of courage?”  the voiceover asks. The answer is somewhere around 1973, the year of the first oil embargo. Until then, the US economy had enjoyed a 20-year run of steady growth. In that economy, just doing your job was enough. That bought you a house, a pension, health insurance, relative security. But then the price of a... Read More

Innovation: Part of the Job

No matter where you look, innovation is transforming old, overwhelmed systems. No industry is like it was 5 years ago. Online shopping disrupts store-front retail. Online degrees disrupt campus-based education. Newspapers are failing, and Twitter is growing. Entrepreneurs crowdsource their start-ups, seek gigs rather than careers, and use Uber rather than buy a cars.   No More Status Quo This fits with generational cycles. Every 80 years or so, we go through a period of... Read More
