Every Generation Wins: Why Building Multi-Generational Teams is the Future

Lindsay Boccardo

Generations misunderstanding each other is not a new problem. Every generation thinks the one that comes after them is less competent, more entitled, or harder to work with in an organization. 

The good news is that no one generation is broken. 

According to a 2019 study, multi-generational teams with a range of 25 years or more from youngest to oldest meet or exceed expectations 73% of the time. Those with a narrow range of less than 10 years did so only 35% of the time. The future of collaborative work is truly about inclusion.  

In this interactive session, Lindsay will facilitate a dialogue on generational differences and their impact on relationships within membership and volunteer engagement. Participants will explore their individual experiences growing up and how these directly shape their interactions within organizational settings. 

In this session, attendees will: 

  • Understand the origins of generational divides within membership and volunteer engagement. 
  • Identify the key factors contributing to generational tension within organizations. 
  • Anticipate the cultural expectations of future young employees and volunteers within organizational cultures. 
  • Discover strategies to enhance the positive influence of multi-generational membership and volunteer teams.
