Do you want to be relevant in challenging times? There are headlines everyday recognizing people for their greatness in achieving success in our country whether it be in business, politics, sports, education or technology. However, as we grow older, we tend to realize that it is not all about the accolades that come with the trappings of success. It is about the insight that you gain from your experiences, whether good or bad, and sharing it with others. The positive impact of sharing that insight is fuel for optimism in the 21st century.
You can feel optimistic when you see Generation-Y blazing new trails of success in joining three other generations in the global workforce. This is a great opportunity for all generations to be in service to each other. Each generation has something that the other generation may need to be successful. Hey, young students fresh out of college are running companies at ripe old age of 21! The young execs will need the savvy skills of the older generation in the workplace. It is the unveiling of the “inter-generational” workplace. Just imagine all generations coexisting efficiently and effectively in the workplace which should bold well for a company’s competitive edge in the global marketplace.
Reverend Bernice King, daughter of Dr. King, put it best in the article, ‘Large crowd honors King’s dream at memorial dedication’, “ I’m still hoping that when people leave here that they will be reinvigorated to make an adjustment so we can move our society toward that beloved community”, of which King spoke “ and we can move these walls of divisiveness.” There is a community in the workplace environment. It is still your time to be relevant in the ever-changing global workforce. Hope still runs abound.
How are you being relevant in these challenging times?
