Bridging the Generational Gap in Health Leaders
Thursday, September 27, 2018, 12pm-1pm EDT

Within society, generational gaps are consistent within the workplace as the demographic within leadership roles shift. This has created a turning point within the health industry in terms of values, trends, and technological shifts. One of the most recent generation ‘collisions’ has been the adoption of social media in health where the emerging leader generation has played a large role in driving its use.

Generationally, there may be different outlooks on resistance to change, work expectations, and leadership styles. But are these differences necessarily a bad thing?

Emerging Health Leaders (EHL) Canada led an environmental scan using the LEADs framework as a foundation that engaged emerging, mid-level and senior leaders spanning 3 different generations to better understand the generational gap in health leaders, the challenges it creates, and how we can bridge the gap. With input from over 70 health leaders across Canada, EHL has identified key generational differences and recommendations on how all generations in the health sector can adapt and work together to support the health system.

EHL is a network for emerging health leaders, by emerging health leaders. Providing professional development opportunities, one of the key ways EHL is bridging the gap is through mentorship programs and events. Connecting senior leaders to emerging leaders, EHL has learned the key factors in creating meaningful mentorship opportunities that they will share with you.
