“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” – Warren Bennis
According to an article published by the American Bar Association, there are a number of similarities and differences between Gen Xers and Millennials and how they should be mentored. What constitutes the birth years of Gen Xers and Millennials (also called Gen Yers) is largely disputed. For our purposes, we’ll consider Xers to be from the mid 60s to the early 80s and Millennials those born from the early 80s to the early 2000s. It’s important to keep this in mind when looking at the the differences in deciding the best course of action in mentoring people in these age groups.

Thanks to Paul MacCartney of MindLeaders for tweeting the following quote by William Butler Yeats, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
According to Michael McVey of ClearView Management Resources, 29% of employees consider themselves Fully Engaged, 52% Partially Engaged and 19% are Disengaged. Fully Engaged Employees are 24% more productive than those who consider themselves Partially Engaged. How do you as a manger boost employees into becoming people who’re Fully Engaged? The key is transformational leadership. If you help your employees see the shared goals of the organization and encourage them to utilize their areas of expertise, it helps them to become more invested in their job and the organization.
