A professor of Leadership and Management at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada, Dr. Sean Lyons focuses his research on intergenerational differences and how they impact workforce management and workplace dynamics. His research has appeared in Time Magazine, CTV News Channel, the Business News Network, CBC Radio’s The Current, and other media outlets.
Dr. Lyons joins me on this episode to share some of the workplace and managerial challenges that involve generational differences. He shares factors that organizations need to address to bridge the generational gap such as the language of values in the workplace and the means of measuring performance. He also shares some thought-provoking results in his research regarding job choices, minimalist living versus growth mentality, and some key indications on why we need to keep looking into intergenerational matters.
“Bridging the gap between values, having people talk about what’s important to them allows you to get to the underlying issues.” - Sean Lyons
