The Focus of LC09The conference theme of "Generational Leadership" responds to the changing dynamic of the workplace; the “top-down” business leadership structure is being replaced, and many young college graduates find themselves leading men and women of different generations who have different perspectives towards work ethic, communication, and how to “get the job done.” As the transfer of power from the Baby Boomers to the next generation occurs, diverse challenges will affect nearly every aspect of individual and organizational life. How can we recruit, motivate and retain younger generations? How do we lead across generational gaps, and do core leadership characteristics stand against the test of time? While great leaders often have radically different approaches to leadership and personal interaction, there are also common traits that link all effective leaders.
