Why can’t we all just get along? As the generations work in the same space, the differences seem to be magnified. The lines have been drawn. Everything seems to be black and white with no gray area. If you are a “baby boomer” chances are you find the millennials and Gen Z generations frustrating, perhaps seeing them as entitled, lazy, or arrogant. If you are Gen X like me, it’s all about independence, we find the “baby boomers” closed minded and controlling. If you are a milennial you want to collaborate and not be left out, you want balance, and find meaning and purpose. If you are a Gen Z when it comes to work you want to know, “What’s in it for me”. Let’s open our minds for a minute. The fact is we were all raised in different era’s. The way we were raised was completely different from each other. Each generation speaks a different language. There are technological differences, the speed of information differences, and more…the truth is no generation is right…we are just different, and that’s where we need to start. On this episode of A New Direction we have with us generational expert Chris De Santis talking about his amazing and insightful book: “Why I Find Your Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work”.
Chris De Santis book “Why I Find You Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work” is an eye opening and revealing look at how the different generations came to be, and how they view working in today’s workforce. The book examines how we have come to have the biased views we have of each generation and the Chris gives us ways to help combat those biases and treat each generation as they were meant to be treated by giving us some skill training in both our behavior and mindset when it comes to the different generations. The book is a must read for every CEO, Owner, Founder, Entrepreneur, Manager, and employee. You will come to understand when it comes to generations. “Why I Find You So Irritating“.
