About the Book

Generation X is considered the “forgotten generation.” However, in Gen-eXceptional, author Dr. Robert F. DeFinis makes a case for this resourceful, independent, and resilient generational cohort to step forward and become the leaders they’re destined to be. In this guide, he examines the generations currently in the workplace and makes the case why the “latchkey” generation might be the best hope for leading us in current times. He: • uncovers the essence of Gen X, exploring the foundational experiences and values that shape their innovative approach to leadership; • illuminates the dynamic leadership styles inherent to Gen X, which seamlessly blend traditional wisdom with cutting-edge strategies for the digital age; and • propels us into the future of leadership, showcasing how Gen Xers are at the forefront of driving transformative change. Gen-eXceptional encapsulates the remarkable journey of Generation X, giving valuable insights into their distinct leadership strengths and how these strengths are poised to shape the trajectory of leadership in the twenty-first century. This book offers an indispensable resource for leaders of all ages and backgrounds, providing actionable wisdom and strategies that transcend generational boundaries.
