Distributive Leadership: Across Generations

By Frances Kunreuther

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2011

The author discusses problems facing the Jewish organizational and communal field relating to leadership succession. Older chief executives worry that no one qualified exists to replace them, while younger leaders feel invisible; older executives feel their job is their life, while younger leaders worry about work-life balance; older executives worry their successors will change the organizations they have worked hard to build, for the worse, while younger leaders worry inertia will prevent them from being able to create change. Organizations must create cross-generational partnerships in order to ensure smooth generational transitions, the author contends.
