With a population of just more that 1,2 – billion people, of whom 67% are under the age of 25, Africa is deemed the youngest continent in the world.
Applying the slightest level of futuristic thinking, churches, organisations and businesses cannot do so without including the integration of younger people within their development plans.
However, the question we need to ask: “Is our organisational structures ready and capable to engage and accommodate this vastly different generation within our existing structures?”
For the last few years Generation Index has been intentionally studying the behaviour patterns of younger people within our organisations, as well as what’s to be done in order to be more effective to not only ensure a healthy integration of younger people within our existing structures, but also to come alongside organisations, churches and business to develop healthy platforms for creating a multi-generational environment.
In a recent study done on Generational Leadership, it was confirmed that every generation has its own personal views to what kind of characteristics are required in order to be an effective leader. This lead to the publishing of the Generational Leadership Report, and was the following definition adopted:
“Generational Leadership is the ability to lead from a place of understanding, where the expectations of each generation is understood and applied in a way that contributes significant value to the whole; ‘like a ‘jazz combo’ playing ‘free flow’ where the lead is transferred with anticipated ease in the production of the whole’.”
