Understanding Generations


This module explores who each of the five working generations are and what shaped each. It will set the tone for the learning journey and provide essential context for why generational awareness is so important.

After this module you will:

- Know who each of the five working generations are.
- Understand some of the key differences generations have at work.
- Have completed an audit to identify which generations you clash with the most (and why).

Reflective Questions:

- Where do you see generational differences showing up at work?
- What are some of the generational preferences you have that show up at work?
- Why is being aware of generational differences so important?


Take time to build out a similarities & differences map. Identify the different team members you regularly collaborate with and highlight some of the similarities and differences you experience within each.

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.
