This show examines a dynamic and increasingly influential generation in today’s workforce: Generation X.
Typically characterized by their independence, resilience, and direct communication style, many Gen Xers bring a collaborative, open approach to the workplace that weighs the need to “get the job done” with overall work life balance.
But how do these characteristics play out in the workplace?
And why do many Gen Xers feel trapped beneath a “Gray Ceiling” that prevents them from moving up?
Our guests answer these questions as well as provide expert commentary on the role coaching can play in developing Gen Xers as managers while bridging intergenerational gaps between members of this independent generation and their Baby Boomer and Millenial colleagues.
