It’s Time To End The Generation Wars

Today’s workforce consists of three distinct groups of people – Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Millennials (with the oldest of Generation Z currently entering the workforce) – and they all seem to be arguing over which one is better.

Problem-solving, work ethic, and leadership skills are all up for debate. But, at the end of the day, it’s important to remember that, underneath the titles and classifications, we’re all just people who are looking to carve out a place in the world. 

On this episode of unsuitable, Cindy Kula, a baby boomer in Rea’s Cleveland office, and Erin Cline, a millennial in our Medina office, will attempt to get beyond generational differences to ultimately uncover the opportunities that cooperation in the workplace — regardless of age — can create.

Listen to this episode of unsuitable to learn:

  • What generational differences exist and what are just stereotypes?
  • How diversity creates more opportunities.
  • What leadership needs to do to make inevitable generational shifts productive rather than disruptive.
