Gentelligence is being talked about

Based on the highly acclaimed book:

Gentelligence

The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an Intergenerational Workforce

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield

Readers interested in business and personnel management, organizational development, human resources, and leadership will find this timely, relevant book good for both reading straight through and consulting as a reference for supporting intergenerational workforce cultures and needs.
– Booklist, May 2021

This book is the “how to” manual on navigating an intergenerational workforce, complete with lessons to tap all it has to offer. Gentelligence is indeed the future of work.
– Andrew Goldstein, managing director, Willis Towers Watson

As a Millennial who has led teams and consulted for senior leaders from each generation in the workforce, I found Gentelligence to be one of the most practical and thought-provoking books on leadership I have ever read.
– KaLeena Thomas, Consultant, The Resource Group

With research, stories, and innovative modern methods, Megan Gerhardt’s Gentelligence will show you how a multigenerational workforce can be transformed into an intergenerational powerhouse.

  • Where generational conflict originates, resulting in both dangerous ageism and reverse ageism.
  • Why the generation gap stems from a misunderstanding of shared core values across all generations.
  • How generational shaming leads us to view other generations as competitors damaging team dynamics, innovation, and organizational culture.
  • How new leadership approaches can make sense of changing norms around authority and power.

Fostering an environment of respect, inclusion, open communication, and freedom to create and implement ideas will help organizations capitalize on their generation’s diverse cognitive power.
