NSG 470 Discussion younger generation

Nurse leaders have the opportunity to influence diverse groups of people. This activity is designed to challenge you to think about the opportunities that come with leading and managing a cross-generational workforce.

Members of the younger generation—those 18 to 35 years of age—have said that they want to be led, not managed.

Write a 175-word summary in which you answer the following questions:

·         How do you think leadership would be different for a person who leads only people between 18 and 35 years of age compared with a person whose followers are mostly over the age of 40? 

·         What strategies would you recommend for a person who becomes the leader of a cross-generational group?
