Four distinct generations are now working together in the Federal workplace: Traditionalists (born approximately between 1922-1943), Baby Boomers (1943-60), Generation X (1960-80) and Millennials (1980-?). Although these groups share some outlooks and beliefs, each possesses values and attitudes unique to its history and experiences. These values significantly affect the workplace styles, preferences, behaviors and expectations of each generation. The Federal Executive Institute's (FEI) Leading Across Generations program is provocative and interactive. It will help you understand the histories, personalities, strengths and challenges of our four generational groups, while you explore how to lead, manage, recruit and retain colleagues of various ages and experience levels.
