How to collaborate over five generations

We have, for the first time in modern age, five generations in the workforce. How can they all work together in an efficient and smart way?

I was recently interviewed on this topic by Forbes/Bloomberg. My take on this is that every generation and person must lead in their role. This means that people need to:

  1. Lead themselves without supervision.
  2. Lead peers.
  3. Lead upward by asking managers the right questions and not delegate problems upward.

Leveraging the unique strength of every generation is more important than just understanding and adapting to the skills and mindsets of millennials or generation z. The goal should be to get every generation to learn from each other and work together in a collaborative way.
