In this episode of the Transform Your Workplace podcast, Brandon Laws interviews Meghan Gerhardt, author of Gentelligence: The Revolutionary Approach to Leading an Intergenerational Workforce and expert in how to effectively implement age diversity in the workplace. You’ll learn how to connect with, teach, and learn from those both older and younger than you. The result? Instead of working against each other, employees can finally bring their varied skills and experience to the table, all for the betterment of the team. It’s all about building a team poised for whatever the next generation has to offer.


  • Employees of all ages have insight to offer, so those of different age ranges should have a seat and a voice at the table.
  • Age bias has been called one of the last socially acceptable biases, but bias of any kind in the workplace is a hindrance to a team’s success.
  • Studies show that, despite differences in approach, Boomers, Gen Z, and Millennials share the same core values.
  • If leaders want to foster trust between employees of different generations, they must create opportunities for intergenerational connection and collaboration.


Meghan Gerhardt holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from the University of Iowa. Years of research and time in the field have taught her that intergenerational cooperation is a necessary yet overlooked aspect of an effective team. She is passionate about providing team-building strategies and workshops to help leaders maximize the potential of a multi-generational team.
