Leading a Successful Multigenerational Proposal Team

Claire McGarry
Proposal Manager SciMetrika

Is there really a "generation gap” in the workplace? These days, most of us work in teams that span several generations. We hear a lot about the differences between Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials and are warned about the challenges of working in multi-generational teams. But recent research shows that we aren’t really as different as we might seem....

With participation from the audience, we will investigate and discuss the negative implications of common stereotypes of each generation. We will consider shifting our focus from the differences between the generations to our similarities, with an emphasis on shared values, needs, and motivations in the workplace. Finally, we will provide tips and best practices for working together on proposals and emphasize the value of including members of various generations in proposal teams.

Claire McGarry is a Proposal Manager at SciMetrika, a fast-growing, health-focused small business serving Federal clients. She has worked in multi-generational teams to win contracts for the firm since 2010, when she shifted her focus from population health research to business development. She holds a BA in International Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and is currently pursuing an Executive Masters of Public Health in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the same institution. She admits to being a Millennial, but asks that you try not to hold that against her!
