Yesterday, I joined an IFTF session on Leadership. During that time, many interesting opinions were discussed, and I realized (again) that I have an axe to grind.
It's all well and good to empower people based on merit, and technology is incredibly disruptive (for those who can afford to use it and who are inherently mobile and change-oriented enough to integrate it into their lives).
However, to assume that newly minted adults are capable of leadership simply because they have strong opinions, strongly held is foolish. Sure, it's something Baby Boomers can identify and relate to, but it's not leadership, it's hubris.
There's a whole decade or two of people who have lived not only with disruptive technology, but with rapid change in volatile and uncertain environments... for 20 years.
More will follow; I'm going to have to break down and take the time to post what I have to say about Generation X and leadership.
