5 Things You Didn't Know About Gen Z

1. That’s not their real name.   The Z thing is basically a placeholder. As Zers go to work and show what they’re made of, a definitive name will emerge. But for now they (and we) have to put up with an annoying rage of names--IGens, Centennials, Plurals, Globals, 21st ers, Founders, etc. In the long term, put your money on Homelanders or on GenEdge, for a gen born on the edge of change. 2. Born to pinch and swipe.    Zs prefer to use 5 screens when multitasking.... Read More

Before long, turnover spiked and... Read More

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.

The company is just part of the package.  Studies across multiple industries all reveal the same evidence—the primary element making Millennials happy in their jobs is a supportive supervisor. And the primary element that makes them disengage and walk is... Read More

Generations and the Workday. Who owns your time?

Have you seen the new  Hyundai ad  about the guy who (GASP!) leaves work on time?  “When did leaving work on time because an act of courage?”  the voiceover asks. The answer is somewhere around 1973, the year of the first oil embargo. Until then, the US economy had enjoyed a 20-year run of steady growth. In that economy, just doing your job was enough. That bought you a house, a pension, health insurance, relative security. But then the price of a... Read More

Why Your Boss is Younger Than You

In traditional corporate models, age and experience were major players. Your boss was your senior. That was the norm. Now that’s changing. For nearly 20 years, digital skills have upended the old model bit by bit.  In a digital economy, change happens faster. New challenges demand new solutions and new skills.

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.
