#LeadandLift | Episode 44 | Tracey Wozny

Have you ever struggled to communicate with someone from a different generation than you?

Like you’re having a conversation with a millennial and they just don’t understand what you are saying. 

Parents, you understand what I mean…

How do you lead others knowing that their values, culture and generation is different than yours…

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Listening to the younger generations
  • Using the right framework to lead
  • Leading people from where they are
  • Resisting the urge to swoop in

I hope you love this interview as much as I did especially the awareness that you have control over the thoughts you let into your mind.

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • When dealing with people from a younger or another generation, the best approach is simply to listen and understand them enough to speak their language. Don’t speak the language of your own generation, you will not be able to communicate well.
  • Understand the skills, values, and characteristics of a person with a different generation from you. If you come in and lead with the framework of your own generation, you will have difficulties.
  • Lead people from where they are, not where you want them to be. Take the time to see where the person is at in their journey and find ways to guide them from the sides and not from above.
  • Learn to delegate and trust those that you lead. Don’t swoop in and do it all by yourself, give them an opportunity to try.

"The job of the leader is to be able to listen, learn, guide from the sides - they are better guiding from the sides not from the top down of the pyramid - to be able to lead them where they are and move them up in their leadership and success." — Tracey Wozny
