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

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

In their 20s and early 30s now, Millennials seldom invest. Only one in three owns stock (one in five among younger Millennials. (1)   Forty percent of Millennials prefer cash over stock for long-term savings, and only 1 in 10 Millennials say they would use a raise at work to invest in the market. (2) When... Read More

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. Before long, turnover spiked and... Read More

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. We all have to be able to make the call or take the call. Millennials who want to succeed can't afford phone phobia. The CEO’s complaint tripped a memory wire for me. At 28, I became the editor of a magazine. To the people I worked with, I looked like a kid.... 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
