Is It Time to Manage Millennials Differently?

Want Loyalty? Manage Collaboratively. Boomers expected to be loyal to the company first. The boss was just part of the package. Millennials have turned that on its head.

Generation X and Feedback: New Research

How do you like your feedback—direct and unvarnished, or softened with some praise thrown in?  We recently surveyed 1,100 employees from all generations and got surprising results. In our research, we gave people several options about feedback and asked them to choose which they preferred. Two very different options were: 1.  I want straight talk. Sugar coating wastes time. 2.  Take your time and tell me the good things along with the bad. ... Read More

Why a Generations Keynote?

“Why would I come to your generations keynote?” a friend asked me. “I already know I’m a Boomer, so what’s the point?” I considered my friend—a successful realtor, energetic, all over FaceBook and Twitter. “Is there an age group you just don’t like as clients?” I asked. “I like everybody,” she said.

Trusting Tech (and Strangers)

Trust is interesting currency. The other day I requested a ride from Lyft and was shown a photo of my smiling “new friend.” When she arrived, smile intact, I gave her the prerequisite fist bump and got in. Never saw her before in my life. Total stranger. And total trust. But what was I trusting? Lisa, my driver, was chatty and bright, easy to trust. But before I ever met Lisa, when she was still just pixels on my iPhone, I had decided that, barring a bloody axe on... Read More
