Stories for Today. Stories for Tomorrow.
What’s it all about? A cottage industry of generational consulting and coaching flooded the HR market in recent years, and while there has been much value added by these discussions, one has to wonder if the bigger picture isn’t being missed. Why does each maturing generation appear surprised by the fresh eyes of those aspiring leaders that will follow? And, what encourages aspiring leaders to sometimes miss the wisdom of the ages? The enormity of current societal crises and recognition of our common humanity may provide just the fertile ground for reconsidering the workplace generational divide. This forum offers the perspectives of three young professionals dancing directly in or on the periphery of the HR space. They will be joined by leaders who sometimes coach them, sometimes mentor them – one of their fathers and one of their friends who just happen to be HR leaders themselves. Participants include: Maya Hurley-Wales, Ed Hurley-Wales, James Brissenden, Joe Andrews, and Lauren Clear.
Why you’ll want to participate in this session.
- Let’s talk about the moment – how Covid-19 and George Floyd are influencing values, career choices, and human resources.
- We’ll do some cross-training that encourage established leaders and young leaders alike to recognize sub-conscious generational biases, starting with a list of pejorative expressions.
- Then we’ll close with some strategic perspective on how these issues will play to organizational and community development as we awaken to a post-COVID and perhaps more just world.
