Generational Differences?

The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.
— Socrates 469 to 399 B.C.

Every generation says the same things about those that come behind them.  Rather than fixating on the generational differences this week, focus on connecting with and leveraging the needs and desires we all have.  You will be amazed what positive outcomes can come from that.

  • Treat each other with dignity and respect.
  • Recognize and leverage the unique talents we each have.
  • Provide involvement and a sense of purpose.
  • Listen to others' opinions.
  • Provide autonomy.
  • Strive for a healthy work and life balance.

If we focus on what makes us similar, and not our differences, the collective impact we can make is incredible.
