The Leadership Challenge

Gen Z to Boomer: How Views and Expectations of Leadership Differ

Date: Tuesday, September 24, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM ET

Duration: 60-minutes

Who is tapped to lead next at your company? Are they interested in jumping on the leadership pipeline? What do they expect from leaders? They may define “leadership” differently than we’re used to seeing it.

Join us as we debrief our findings on our new study: The Leadership Challenge: How Different Generations See It. In this exhaustive study of more than 2000 workers spanning the range of generations, we look at how views differ and what it will take to lead the next generations.

Specifically, we’ll discuss our findings related to:

  • How generational views of leadership vary, including expectations of leaders and their ideas about the best ways to develop leaders.
  • How interested employees, by generation, are in becoming leaders in their organizations, and what does that entail?
  • Are there important differences by generation or do other differences matter more, like Career Stage, Education Level, Family Status.

We investigated all of these important questions and will share them during this webinar.
