Trying to build awareness across the multiple generations of people around your organizational, dinner or boardroom table can help multigenerational groups cultivate productive relationships and effective decision-making. This colorful, concise resource packet outlines the five unique “personalities” of each generation that family members and professional advisors operating in a multigenerational context may see sitting around the table. These may include representatives from the Traditionalists (1925-1945), Baby Boomers (1945-1965), and Generation X-ers (1965-1980), all the way to the Millennials (1980-1995) and Generation Z-ers (1995-2015). Regardless if some or all of these generations are present in your work or families, every one sees and approaches the world through a distinct, generational lens. Use the text and illustrations in Generational Personalities to facilitate a discussion around the conditions and characteristics that define the different generational groups. This will allow users to foster a deeper understanding, appreciation and even build empathy for what members of other generations brings to their decision-making. Each set includes 10 copies.
