  9. 9. APPRECIATION OF GENERATIONAL CULTURE DIFFERENCES BY THE MENTEE AND THE MENTOR • GENERATION X (born 1963-1981) – WORK HARD IF BALANCE IN LIFE IS ALLOWED – EXPECT MULTIPLE FACULTY SEARCHES – ‘PAYING DUES’ DOES NOT EQUAL LONGEVITY AT A JOB – SELF-SACRIFICE TO BE ENDURED OCCASSIONALLY – QUESTION AUTHORITY & TRADITIONAL MODELS
  10. 10. APPRECIATION OF GENERATIONAL CULTURE DIFFERENCES BY THE MENTEE AND THE MENTOR • BABY BOOMERS (born 1945-1962) – WORK HARD OUT OF LOYALTY, SOMETIMES GUILT – EXPECT LONGER TERM COMMITMENT FROM INSTITUTION – ‘PAYING DUES’ SHOULD BREED LOYALTY FROM THE HEIRARCHY – SELF-SACRIFICE IS A VALUED VIRTUE – AUTHORITY (CHRONOLOGICAL AGE) IS RESPECTED

  23. 23. “Ecologists tell us that a tree planted in a clearing of an old forest will grow more successfully than one planted in an open field. The reason, it seems, is that the roots of the forest tree are able to follow the intricate pathways created by former trees and thus imbed themselves more deeply. Indeed, over time, the roots of many trees actually graft themselves to one another, creating an interdependent mat of life hidden beneath the earth. This literally enables stronger trees to share resources with the weaker so that the whole forest becomes healthier. Similarly, human beings thrive best when we grow in the presence of those who have gone before. Parks Daloz (2000)34
