How do you buildeffective cross-generationalteams?

What cross-generational teams can do

Innovation relies on a number of different and divergent perspectives being brought to bear on a problem. A mixed-generation team inevitably contains a diversity of perspectives and views which, if channelled well, leads to the best solutions, the best products and a highly engaged team.

Get it wrong, and it can mean conflict, ineffective working and a feeling of frustration for the team members.

Get it right, and you can release knowledge, wisdom and talent from all generations. A great cross-generational team feels vibrant, and there is a sense of learning and fun within and between the generations.
