Leading a new generation : a cross-generational study on adapting leadership and motivational techniques to best fit the newest working generation

by Baird, Andrew Kyle

Abstract

A survey was distributed to the student body of Colorado College (152). The resulting study analyzed leadership and motivational techniques already in place that have a strong presence in today’s business world. It also analyzed generational gaps and the similarities and differences between each of these generations that currently inhabit the workforce. Through a theoretical analysis of The Baby Boomers and Generation X and the results obtained from the survey questioning a highly motivated and driven group of individuals in Generation Y, a conceptual model was formed adapting the techniques already in place to better fit the newest working generation. This model was formed to give leaders a leading style that is based on a unique, intelligent, and motivated group of individuals at Colorado College, providing a theory in which multiple leaders can adapt to effectively lead Generation Y workers in any environment.
