  Lessons of a 55 Year Old CEO in Leading a Millennial Driven Non-Profit
by Kathy Caprino - Mar, 2016
As a 55-year-old former corporate VP turned career consultant and entrepreneur, I’m always fascinated to hear stories of “boomer” professionals who’ve achieved great success managing and collaborating with Millennial teams. As I know from experience, there’s inner and outer work and self-evaluation necessary for leaders to learn to adapt to working effectively with different generational groups . Flexible and responsive leader...
 
  Confessions Of A Gen X Manager
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
Lately at speaking events I've been hearing some complaints from Millennials about their Gen X bosses. Because Gen Xers are only a few years older than Millennials, the younger group is often surprised that members of the older cohort my contemporaries aren't always as supportive and attentive as millennials might want or expect. While this post only represents the views of one Gen X manager, you might find them valuable in un...
 
  Help! My Boss Is A Millennial - And I'm Not!

It’s a situation that will become increasingly prevalent, since millennials are now the largest demographic in today’s workplace. In my book, Becoming the Boss, I help millennials with their managerial skills, but if you’re a Baby Boomer or a Gen Xer on the other side of the desk, you might need some advice, too. Keep re...
 
  4 Tips to Being More Hirable Every Executive Should Know

The executive job market has changed over the years. That’s a fact. Employers are extremely selective with their executive hires more so today than ever before. The number of qualified candidates searching for new positions still creates a highly competitive market. How can you present yourself to be more hirable and beat out your competition? Tip 1: Stand out with your resume. The old-fashioned resume format is dead. Be...
 
  Critical Knowledge Holders: Are You One?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Every now and then, we hear about the large number of employed people who are on the verge of retiring and the risk to their employers of having irreplaceable knowledge walk out the door with them. Yet it seems to me that not enough companies are taking positive steps to meet this challenge before it becomes an epidemic. It does occur to me that I might not know everything that’s going on “out there,” so I could easily be m...
 
  Are Recruiters and Hiring Managers Really Using Your Age Against You?
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
I’ve had many mature executive clients tell me they have experienced some form of age discrimination in their careers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission stated that record levels of age-discrimination lawsuits have been filed in the last five years. One contributing factor: millennials are moving into junior executive or executive positions and some may not recognize an older worker’s value to an organization. The...
 
  Are You Properly Leveraging Your Retiring Boomers?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
I've observed an interesting phenomenon. Condo sales in the town where my in laws live, West Palm Beach, were picking up. As someone who studies workforce trends, this is the opposite of what I expected to happen. The baby boomer generation, I thought, does not want to retire to Florida and play golf and mahjong all day. They want to stick around and keep contributing. It turns out I had only part of that right. Boomers wan...

  Why Boomers Are More Likely To Succeed as Entrepreneurs
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
