Growing, but Gray?

Associations and nonprofits tend to have a common problem these days—going gray. Even groups that are growing in this recovering economy are often growing older , too. No surprise then, that the biggest challenge associations and nonprofits report is engaging younger generations. Until recently, people supported nonprofits and associations because it was the “right thing to do.” Nothing wrong with that. It just doesn’t work with Gen X and Millennials. The first... Read More

Why Your Boss is Younger Than You

In traditional corporate models, age and experience were major players. Your boss was your senior. That was the norm. Now that’s changing. For nearly 20 years, digital skills have upended the old model bit by bit.  In a digital economy, change happens faster. New challenges demand new solutions and new skills. Experience and seniority tend to matter less, competency and agility more. The generational layer cake breaks down even further on project teams where older... Read More

Why a Generations Keynote?

“Why would I come to your generations keynote?” a friend asked me. “I already know I’m a Boomer, so what’s the point?” I considered my friend—a successful realtor, energetic, all over FaceBook and Twitter. “Is there an age group you just don’t like as clients?” I asked. “I like everybody,” she said. Then she paused. “But there’s this thing some people do that drives me crazy.” She... Read More

New Life Stages, Same Old Generations

“I know the younger generation is different now, but when they get older, they’ll act more like us. Right?” That’s a question I often hear from audience members on the plus side of 50. The answer: Yes. Maybe. Definitely no. It’s complicated. When I was in school generational theory wasn’t even a theory yet. It certainly wasn’t a standard part of sociology, psychology, anthropology, history and business courses. But we... Read More

Which Generation Are You REALLY at Work?

Sure, you were born into a generation. But then you went to work and encountered a culture shaped by generations before you. Company culture reflects the people who founded and grew the place. In order to succeed, you may have adopted ways of doing business from an earlier era.  Maybe you're a surreptitious Silent. Or not. In fact, if you’re curious, far-sighted or just plain rebellious, you may behave like a generation younger than you age... Read More

Gen Z: Your Interns Are Different This Year.

Meet your interns. They expect to work hard for success. They're realists, not optimists. They want to build things--like, with their hands . They're compliant rather than collaborative, and they focus on the future rather than expecting rewards today. This is GenEdge (also called Gen Z), and they are a big change from the Millennials who preceded them. If you haven't noticed differences yet, you soon will.  Born between 1995 and 2010,... Read More

When Fish See the Water

“I’m having an ah-ha moment,” the Gen X manager said. Everyone in the conference room turned her way. She indicated a Boomer sitting nearby. “You think I don’t hear you.” The Boomer nodded. “It seems to me that you focus on the technology and lose the content.” The room was quiet. Something important had begun.   In my work, I think of these as moments when the fish sees the water.   Bear with me here. In this... Read More

Managing Millennials: Amy Lynch talks with Entrepreneur Magazine

Generations expert Amy Lynch  knows why older leaders fail to connect with Millennials. "I get it," she says. "Leading Millennials doesn't come naturally for Boomers. It means breaking out of the top-down mold and becoming collaborative. It means learning to say " Here's what we have to do. Now, talk to me. How shall we get it done?"   Fortunately, most Boomers are getting the hang ot it. And, at the same time, Millennials make... Read More
