Generational differences in the workplace
This is the first time in our nation's history that we have four generations working in the same workplace. However, the future leaders they need do not yet have the skills and competencies developed to adequately fill and sustain these soon-to-be vacated roles. Without the ability to find, retain, motivate and develop younger leaders, it will be even more challenging to achieve the critical succession planning that organizations need to survive. New tensions and frustrations are emerging as senior leaders are being asked to work with, develop and train younger leaders. More importantly, the generational differences that exist in how we view work, rewards, and a career path can make dealing with conflict in the workplace even more challenging. If you've ever heard someone complain about the lack of work ethic that exists with younger leaders or their general sense of entitlement, you've got a generation gap issue on your hands. This overview focuses on how each generation defines work expectations differently and what to do when you come to certain crossroads by using communication skills that will bridge the generation gap at work.
