We are using the same language yet talking in tongues. The same words mean different things to the generations. How can we make a connection to clients, new employees, peers, supervisors, or executive management if we don’t understand where they are coming from? VPI gets it. And we have proven ways to leverage generational similarities and differences to accomplish goals more effectively.

Baby Boomers (Born: 1946 – 1964) – Think “P” – Pride, Process, Perks, Prestige.

Leadership transition is taking place right now. Traditionalists to Boomers in some organizations. Baby Boomer to Gen X or even Gen Y in others. VPI can support a smooth transition honoring the Boomer’s motivations, work style and learning style.

Gen X (Born: 1965 – 1980) – Think “F” – Freedom, Family, Fun, Friends.

Sandwiched by Boomer and Gen Y, Gen Xers are doing work in ways that baffle the other generations. They are living out their own genXpectations. VPI understands their “F” motivations and offers solutions to delegation, teamwork, and leadership challenges.

Gen Y aka Millennials (Born: 1981 – 2009) – Think “C” – Creativity, Community, Connection, Cause.

Full of ideas, energy and a digital state of mind, Gen Y is causing waves. Is it managing Millenials or managing the Millenials malaise? With high expectations of engagement and technology, they seek happiness and feedback alien to previous generations. VPI offers proven ways to onboard, manage and lead them well.

Gen Z aka Generation Alpha (Born: 2010 – 2024) – Think “S” – Social Media, Self-awareness, Shrewd, Sentimentality.

Resourceful and independent learners who value diversity and put mental-health and well-being as a top priority. Generation Z values flexibility, authenticity, and non-hierarchical leadership. Born into a world of technological innovation, they have had an abundance of information at their fingertips their entire lives. They are recognized for their informed purchasing decisions and ability to set boundaries.
