Gentelligence: The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an Intergenerational Workforce, book cover, author Megan Gerhardt

As featured in Harvard Business Review

Unlike other books on generational leadership, Gentelligence rejects common stereotypes assigned to different generations, replacing them with a deep understanding of why those who grew up in different times may behave in unique and valuable ways.

We challenge leaders to go beyond simply accepting generational differences to leverage them proactively – and increase engagement, innovation, and organizational success.

Now you can be among the first to join Gentelligence Academy –  a groundbreaking new approach that will have you thinking about your generationally diverse workforce in an entirely different way.

Ideal for leaders, HR, and teams across industries, the Academy offers 24/7 access to courses on Mastering Gentelligence, Leading Gentelligent Teams, and Gentelligence for the Future of Work. Each course includes exercises to put your learning into practice, personally led by founder of the Gentelligence Movement, Dr. Megan Gerhardt.

With organizations everywhere promoting diversity and inclusion, Gentelligence is an essential but overlooked piece to the D&I puzzle. This book is the “how to” manual on navigating an intergenerational workforce, complete with lessons to tap all it has to offer. It’s hard to imagine winning the War for Talent without fostering an environment that celebrates generational diversity rather than stifling it. Gentelligence is indeed the future of work.

— Andrew Goldstein, managing director, Willis Towers Watson

Vital for any organization with multigenerational staffs, and for marketers, public relations professionals, HRD managers, or executives. Highly recommended for all university libraries supporting business and psychology curricula.
