What’s Working With Multiple Generations Right Now?
- UNDERSTANDING differences and making room for them is an important step right now. Every generation for 3,000 years or more has bemoaned “the problems with young people.” And US VERSUS THEM approach creates walls and prevents teamwork.
- LISTENING makes anyone feel valuable. Listen and empathize if you want better teamwork and results. Listen and have a dialogue, and you’ll create a better experience and happier customers and employees.
- LIKABILITY makes a connection and creates TRUST. Everyone likes different things. Every generation likes different things. People in other generations won’t be exactly like you, but if you know what they like, you can get along great!
- TRUST creates more sales and stronger teams. People don’t trust people who judge them. Trust comes from familiarity and common values. Look for what you have in common with people from other generations.
- TECHNOLOGY can create or cure generational barriers. Listen to people who have a lot of experience at something. Boomers do better listening to Millennials about the Internet, technology and apps and Millennials excel when they benefit from Gen X and Boomer’s business experience.
