Becoming an Intergenerational
Talent Magnet

Creating a positive, productive culture that attracts talent and encourages innovation requires intentionality. Once you’ve identified your company’s core values and higher purpose, you can hire by them, onboard members by them, and truly live your values which will lead to long-term success, profitability, and growth.

  • Reinforce the business advantages when mentoring with intentionality, leading to corporate resiliency, employee engagement, personal development, and proven higher profitability.

  • Understand why today’s generations are attracted to corporations that have established a brand and a caring culture of inclusion, shared vision, personal empowerment, and self-accountability through responsible freedom.

  • Demonstrate the long-term benefits of mentorship as a methodology for succession planning, legacy building, and personal mental wellbeing development

 Why Don't You Act My Age?
Consciously Leading an
Intergenerational Team

Led by CEO | Author | Conscious Capitalism Ambassador DeLinda Forsythe

What types of opportunities does having five generations in today’s workforce present? How can organizations optimize those opportunities through the lens of Conscious Capitalism?

One of the greatest sources of potential is in the intergenerational make up of your workforce. Harnessing that potential is one of the greatest challenges. It’s a tall order to dispel generational stereotypes and address the needs and preferences of many different groups of employees at once.


What happens when a leader sets aside their assumptions, fosters a culture of mutual respect and productive collaboration, and takes not a generational approach, but rather a human approach to consciously leading their employees?

We invite you to join Conscious Capitalism ambassador and best-selling author of “Inspiring Generational Leadership: Your Guide to Design a Conscious Culture,” to discover how an effective intergenerational workforce supported by a conscious culture of cross collaboration and mutual mentoring offers unprecedented opportunities to:

  • Attract and retain the best talent

  • Overcome inaccurate generational perceptions

  • Integrate your company’s purpose and stakeholders into your operating system

  • Create sustainable change and value for all stakeholder

  • Reveal the financial, societal, and emotional benefits of leading and building a conscious business enterprise

While creating a profitable business with a succession plan that defines legacy and embraces the future vision of capitalism.
