After more than two decades leading transformational projects for organizations of all sizes, Barri Harris has committed herself to supporting success across intergenerational teams so that colleagues can develop meaningful trust in their leaders *and* in each other. In this episode we talk about cultural conditioning, especially related to power and gender, for folks from different generations.
Here’s the episode at a glance:

>> 09:42. Barri discusses where some of our cultural conditioning comes from that gets in the way of intergenerational communication at work, including a conversation about how today’s new professionals are learning differently while they are still in school that prepares them differently for entering the workforce.
