We’ve discussed the differences between the generations in the workplace and how we are experiencing the phenomenon of multi-generational teams. But now it’s time to hear from a Gen Z-er herself, and a remarkable one at that.
Hannah Williams is today’s guest and at the young age of 24, she has accomplished so much. In this episode, she shares her story and how she managed to become such a high achiever in a short time. She is highly articulate in her ability to describe what organizations should and shouldn’t be doing to embrace and develop her generation. This includes what she calls Radical Empathy and the Gen Z Trinity.
In addition to being a young leader in this space, Hannah is also the host of an interesting podcast called Native Digital + Native Analog to further discuss the shift we are seeing across the world in Generation Z’s natural ability to use and rely on technology. She also shares an exclusive link for Winning Teams listeners to find your Native Digital Relevance Score and ways to find her book A Leader’s Guide to Unlocking Gen Z.

About Our Guest:
Hannah Grady Williams was only 12-years-old and in middle school when her dad took her to work at his start-up one day per week. Before long, Hannah was devouring business books. She enrolled in college at age 14 and graduated with a degree in international business by 18. Her efforts to hone her skills during her school years resulted in numerous accolades, including North Carolina Public Speaker of the Year. Hannah was invited onto the board of the Honduras Fountain of Life to provide a Gen Z perspective on Central American missions.
Over the last decade, Hannah has consulted Fortune 500 companies and boutique luxury brands and has had the pleasure of working with some of the best and brightest leaders across the globe. Her young introduction to the world of real estate led her to continue investing as an adult. Now, with the help of her recently published book A Leader’s Guide to Unlocking Gen Z., Hannah is on a mission to help companies connect with her generation. In a time when the world is increasingly divided, Hannah has made it her mission to foster #RadicalEmpathy in the workplace—helping people of all generations gain a voice. Her work provides a bridge of connection between different generations and helps businesses positively engage Gen Z, the newest members of the workforce.
