Gen Z May Drive You Cray Cray. Here's Why.

Gen Z employees are fast. They expect to work hard. They know the value of a dollar. What could go wrong? Here's the  tea . (Z slang for the gossip, the real dirt). Trained by Tech Your biggest challenge with Gen Z employees may well be the challenge their teachers and professors have been facing for years—lack of focus.

Millennial Managers: What It Takes to Succeed

Suddenly in Charge  In 2016 Millennials became the biggest generation in the workforce, and we're not talking entry positions. One in three is a manager. One. In. Three. What makes Ms good leaders?

Don't Panic, That’s Just the Death Rattle of a Boomer-Controlled Congress: What to Expect From Gen X and Millennial Lawmakers

We're approaching one of the biggest generational shifts Congress has ever seen. Boomers are in control, but for how long? Gen X and Millennials are about to make their mark on Washington. Gen X is Rising Fast. Xers will almost certainly win a majority in the House in 2018 and in the Senate by 2024. During the 1990s, The Atlantic proposed that Xers had adopted “political apathy as a way of life.” But it’s not apathy we see in this new generation of... Read More

Can a Company Have Gen IQ? Sure It Can. (Or, Why Nobody Got Fired.)

The Boomer president of a law firm was concerned about young attorneys who dressed more casually than he thought appropriate. So he sent an email to everybody saying that he wanted all attorneys in suits during client meetings. One Millennial attorney didn’t agree. He gave the email some thought and decided to respond. He wrote, “I have a lot of young clients. A suit may not be the right move when meeting with them.” He carefully constructed his arguments for going casual.... Read More

Gen Differences Are Everywhere.

The first place we tend to recognize generational differences is at work. But no matter where we go, we slosh around in a stew of different generations. Do these sound familiar?  • Your family is trying to plan a beach trip for next year. The Boomers have their calendars planned til 2035 (or the apocalypse, whichever comes first), but the Millennials can’t commit to next year. They’re still on Snapchat deciding where to go tonight. You argue with family... Read More

Dear Agent: 5 Ways to Win My Business and 5 Sure Ways to Lose It. Sincerely, Millennials

Generational Stereotypes: What They Cost Us 

Guest Post by Katie Fritchen | Crestcom International, Inc. Generation: (n) Everybody born about the same time you were, and who shared many of your formative experiences. Stereotype: (n) Preconceived notions that Gen Xers are Slackers, that Millennials are entitled or that Boomers are intractible. (NOT!) Generational stereotyping is not new.

Don't Let Generational Conflict Kill Your Small Business

Generational studies have been around for a decade now. Most of us ticked generational differences off our competency list years ago. Millennials? Lots of feedback. Boomers? Use the phone. And that was fine. Until now. Right now, generations at work are changing faster than you can say “demographic cohort.” First, millennials aren’t the new guys any more. They’re established, experienced and the largest generation in the workplace -- basically the new... Read More

Generational Intelligence: Your Career Depends on It.

Not long ago I met a dynamic Gen Xer. She is a VP in a C-Suite dominated by Boomers.

But Boomers in the group saw her as negative. “They used to cringe when I walked in the room,” she told me. “I saw them do it.” Isolated and discounted, she got nowhere with her initiatives. Her...
