Managing with Generational Intelligence: A Story

Karen managed a team of Millennials, and she was confused by the way they worked. “They were never at their desks,” she recalls, and they were always working with headphones on.” Then there was social media. “If I walked up and Pinterest was on their screen, they wouldn’t even be embarrassed about it!” So Karen told the team what she expected—that they work from their desks, and no social media of any kind.

Millennial Phone Phobia

The CEO was frustrated. "I ask a Millennial to call someone, and they text instead. There’s a difference." She's right. A phone call is the power choice when time is short or stakes are high.

Dinks, Sleep and the American Dream: Gen X Finds Balance

As Gen X entered the workplace, the world went digital and the economy slowed. Both changes made the work week longer. Always-able Gen X has adapted in clever ways. Like watching less TV (fewer hours than slacker Booms) and putting in work hours after putting the kids to bed. And then there are the major changes, like having fewer kids, and having them later.  How has Gen X adapted? They sleep less for starters. The "sandwich" generation squeezed between aging...
