Rethinking Collaboration


This module reviews the top three ways to ensure successful collaboration across generations. It reviews how to create an environment of psychological safety, how to ensure the right people are in the right seats on the “bus,” and what is needed to ensure team engagement.

After this module you will:

- Be more confident with how you approach cross-generational teamwork.
- Be prepared with strategies to improve the current teams you work in.
- Have helped to create a team environment that is truly inclusive.

Reflective Questions:

- Where do you experience the biggest difficulties when working in teams?
- Which of the best practices from the lesson resonated with you most, and Why?
- Where do you thrive when working in a team setting and where do you face challenges?


Provide both yourself and your teammates some classification for where they do their best work. Instead of classifying John as a hard worker or Lisa as energetic, really pinpoint where and how they contribute to the team.

Adriaan is a futuristic thinker towards Organisational Development within the context of Generational Behaviour patterns.

He is the founding director of the 'Generation Index' and is passionate about Africa and her people. Over his 23 years of cross-border travels, he had the opportunity to visit close to 40 nations, of which the majority were in Africa. His travels and interactions with business and the 'not-for-profit' sector helped him to realise the immense disconnect between generations within the workplace, and the incredible loss of intellectual knowledge due to the lack of engagement between younger and older.

Adriaan believes that Africa is an awakening giant and that her full potential can be realised through her majority population; the young people (67% under the age of 25).

Adriaan holds a Masters degree in Global Leadership; Intercultural Studies from the University of Gloucester, UK.
