Lead and Work Across Generations

Why It’s Difficult to Work Across Generations

Since Millennials and Generation Z became a majority of the labor force, the generational gap has never been wider as each generation has a varying perspective of work, leadership, communication, success, and technology. However, a generationally diverse workforce is crucial for thriving in today’s high-flux and disruption-prone marketplace.

A multigenerational workforce can create stifling challenges or bottomline-boosting advantages. Ryan brings market-leading insight to help your organization and leaders close the generational gap and improve communication, teamwork, innovation, and more.

  • Insights into the generational gap and why it exists
  • Insights into each generation’s values, behaviors, and expectations
  • Perspectives of each generation’s varying views of work, leadership, communication, and technology
  • Strategies that are proven and actionable to close the generational gap at work
  • Techniques for optimizing a multigenerational workforce



Today’s leading organizations and forward-thinking leaders understand that diversity and inclusion is much more than a buzzword, it’s a business strategy capable of driving performance, enhancing innovation, and engaging and retaining employees. Like-minded teams maintain; diverse teams innovate.

Ryan shares how to unlock the power of cognitive diversity through a multigenerational workforce. This program provides a blueprint for how to be an inclusive leader and how to create an inclusive company culture across generations.

  • Insights into the value of diversity and inclusion
  • Insights into the business benefits of cognitive diversity

Leaders should point their people to a better future. But identifying “better” is difficult, especially in today’s fast-evolving marketplace. Every industry and organization has shared assumptions that fuel the prevailing model of how things have always been done. Now more than ever, the prevailing model causes leaders to get complacent, industries to get stuck, and companies to go under. Leaders must find new innovative ways to lead in order to guard against disruption and thrive in the 21st-century workplace.

Ryan shares how to unbound yourself from the assumptions and prevailing models that are likely holding your organization back. This program covers the emerging trends that are impacting the future of work and how leaders and organizations can adjust to capitalize on the trends.

  • Insights into trends shaping the future of work and why today is different than any other time in history
  • Perspectives of how employee behaviors and expectations are evolving
  • Strategies for leaders to remain relevant and increase influence in tomorrow’s workplace

What people are saying…

Healthcare Director

Ryan’s style is engaging, humorous and professional. His material is grounded in his research, which hit home for our audience. I highly recommend Ryan to speak on leadership and the generations—he was a big hit for us.


The Generation Z Guide equips professionals to improve recruitment, enhance engagement, and effectively train and develop the post-Millennial generation. Born after 1998, Generation Z ranges from those entering high school, completing undergraduate college, and starting careers. Generation Z is very different than Millennials and their rapid entrance into the workforce is increasing the complexity of managing and working across generations.

The Millennial Manual equips leaders to increase productivity, improve retention, and accelerate the development of their Millennial workforce.

Since Millennials became a majority of the labor force, leaders have found themselves ill-equipped to successfully manage, develop, and engage this unprecedented generation. As a result, Millennials are the most disengaged and least loyal generation at work contributing to annual costs of $500 billion in lost productivity and $30.5 billion in Millennial turnover.
