Angeline Gillings, the influential founder of AMP-G LLC and a prominent figure in strategic business coaching, recently enlightened an audience of professionals at the Florida Society of Certified Managers (FSCPM) State Symposium. Addressing a vital topic, “Multi-generations in the Workplace: Maximize Collaboration, Minimize Conflict,” Gillings shared her extensive insights on fostering productive intergenerational dynamics in professional settings.
As one of four distinguished presenters on October 20, 2023, Gillings explored the unique challenges and opportunities presented by the current workforce’s generational diversity, ranging from Builders to Gen Z. Her presentation emphasized the significance of empathetic leadership in leveraging the distinctive strengths of each generation, advocating for a workplace environment where diverse perspectives and skills are harmoniously integrated.
Angeline’s address highlighted the competitive advantages of this approach, especially with the lessons learned from those with many years of experience and the younger groups with unorthodox ideas for problem-solving
Gillings discussed the five generations currently active in the workforce: Builders (1929-1945), Boomers (1946-1964), Gen X (1965-1982), Millennials (1983-2000), and Gen Z (2001-2015). She pointed out that each group offers distinct insights and approaches, contributing to innovative solutions, enhanced adaptability, improved communication, a broader skill set, and increased customer engagement.
“Understanding and respecting the unique set of skills and strengths within a multi-generational group is crucial,” said Gillings.
“When leaders honor and respect these differences, they win the hearts of their team members, showing that they are understood, valued, and genuinely known.”
Gillings also shared practical tips for building generational bridges, including utilizing various communication methods and supporting “reverse mentoring” groups. She emphasized that effective collaboration across generations reduces misunderstandings and conflicts, thereby fostering a more resilient and adaptable team.
“There is as much to LEARN as there is to TEACH across generations,” she quoted, adapting from Gloria Steinem to reinforce the symposium’s theme. Gillings further noted that understanding and respecting generational differences is crucial for leaders to truly connect with their teams.
