Bridging the Generation Gap

Don’t resent, fear or judge the next generation.  Believe in them because they need you!

If you are not dead, you are not done.

You do not just delegate tasks to the next generation.  If you delegate tasks, you create followers.  When you delegate authority, you create leaders.

Embrace the season you are in.

If you feel entitled, you’ll overestimate what you can do in the short run but you’ll underestimate what you can do with a lifetime of faithfulness.

You lead up by showing honor.  Show honor publicly and it results in influence privately.

Honor builds up, dishonor tears down.

Respect is earned, but honor is given.  You show honor to those above you.

If you ever want to be “over”, you need to be “under” with integrity.


1) Create ongoing feedback loops between generations

2) Create specific mentoring moments

3) Create opportunities for significant leadership development
