Trust Me. Really. Honestly, Like, Just Trust Me. (Please)

Generations expert, Amy Lynch speaks to audiences from associations to Fortune 100s, from marketers to managers and educators. No matter who the audience, the issue of cross-generational trust always enters the conversation .   According to Pew Research, one in five Millennials say most people can be trusted. In contrast, one in three Gen Xers assume most people are trustworthy.  For half of all Boomers, the first impulse is to trust. So, if a... Read More

Notes on NOT Being the Generations Police

Generations expert Amy Lynch tries very hard not to be the generations police.  Some of her best friends are Xennials.   The End of Big Bucket Gens No doubt you’ve heard a Big Buckets generations speech. It’s about Silents, Booms, Gen X and Millennials as idealists, skeptics, pragmatists and so on. When we’re talking about 100s of millions of people over decades of time, some generalities are inevitable. The problem is that these... Read More

2020: Will Your Generation Be Invisible?

Amy spoke recently to the Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research . THESE ARE NOTES FROM her ADDRESS.      The room was full of data-heads. Everybody there spoke “numbers” fluently. So we started there – big generations, small ones, how peacetime and good economies make birthrates go up while wars and uncertain economies drive fertility down. As a result, Millennials are today's official gorilla gen... Read More

Enter the Ear Bud

If you are Gen X or Millennial, and certainly if you are Gen Z, you may never have been outside the range of urban noise. Traffic, electronics, construction—they’re everywhere. In fact, most of us live above the 75-decibel noise level health experts recommend. Even average noise levels in our homes easily reach 90 decibels. Meanwhile out in the wild, nature is getting drowned out. In nearly two-thirds of US national parks, airplanes, cars mining and drilling are regularly twice the... Read More

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

What Will Happen Next? The Answer Is WHO.

I can totally relate to the jumper above. Entering 2018 feels like making a crazy leap into an unknown future where things keep changing fast. Disruption is the new normal. Maybe like me you often wonder what will happen next. If so, there's good news. The question that unlocks the future is not “What will happen next?” Ask instead, “ WHO will happen next?” Who is positioned to bring new and timely innovation to your company? Who is reshaping...

Goodbye Trophy Kids. Hello Workaholics.

Each new generation gets slammed when it first comes to work. Generation Xers were called "Slackers." Boomers were labeled "lazy hippies" and the "Me, Me, Me" generation. When Millennials came to work a decade ago, they were called "Trophy Kids," a reference to entitlement and unearned rewards.   That was then. This is now. Nearly half the workforce is Millennial, and more than 25% of them are managers. Millennials have outgrown their bad... Read More

Impatient Patients?

What’s a patient? A sick person who receives care, right? Yes, and also no. That verb “receive” is outdated. Younger generations aren’t content to simply receive care. Increasingly, they expect to design the experience more or less for themselves. Gen X, Millennials and forward-thinking Boomers approach care as a transaction. What does this mean for providers? Here’s quick look at the very different generations in your population. Baby Boomers The big news... Read More
