Terms & Conditions

Refunds for all our individual events are available if notice is given three business days prior by email or telephone, or one month prior to first session of our programmes.

In the case of exceptional circumstances let us know and we will consider a refund/transfer.

Managing and leading employees from different generations can be challenging for today’s leaders. Each generation has unique characteristics, preferences and expectations, making it difficult to communicate, motivate, and inspire everyone effectively.

In this session, we will delve into the meaning of leadership and provide insights on how to lead effectively across generations, including the Silent Generation, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, Generation Z, and Generation A. 

Led by leadership expert Dr Malcolm McGregor, the session will cover:

  • Leadership – what is it & how do you lead?;
  • What we know about the major generation groups;
  • How to lead generation groups;
  • Generation Y & Z researched insights.

This virtual event is free to Full and Directors’ Circle members. It will also include an opportunity for Q&A and sharing experience with other members of our network, under Chatham House rule.
