Tackling a Multigenerational Workplace: A Conversation with Drew Brees
In today’s workplaces, up to five generations work side by side, often with mixed results. The challenges show up in differing approaches to teamwork, communication, work styles, motivations and the personal issues employees bring to work with them. Workplaces that succeed in including, valuing and capitalizing on these differences are the ones thriving today.
The NFL is no different. As one of only a handful of quarterbacks who have ever played into their 40s, Drew Brees has become an expert on leading players from Gen X to Gen Z to success while also navigating the New Orleans Saint’s multigenerational coaching staff and front office.
In this conversation, Drew will discuss his experience in leading across generations and the inclusion strategies he has developed that have brought him continued success in a storied and prolonged NFL career.
