BRIDGE THE GAP
“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. ”
George Bernard Shaw
For the first time in history, thanks to our longevity, we are seeing five different generations coming together at work. That many generations in a single place means a clash of perspectives, expectations, priorities, leadership styles and assumptions. No wonder companies are struggling to create cohesive, stable and engaged teams.
In the past the newcomers might have been willing to bend to the the practices and styles of the old guard, that is no more. Millennials are a force to contend with, and when they’re unhappy they leave – at the cost of $30.5B annually, not to mention the losses in innovation, and talent. What happens when your company will have to adapt to Gen Z? How about the generation after that?
Solving the “Millennial problem” isn’t about convincing younger generations to adopt the old ways, or asking older generations to embrace different priorities. It’s about harnessing the best that individual members have to offer to create dynamic, innovative and cohesive teams.
A team that doesn’t communicate, is team that cannot work together. And that means that you are losing priceless talent, productivity and profit simply because your team members aren’t able to bridge the gap and communicate across generational lines.
Better teams. Better solutions. Better bottom line.
How much more will your team be able to contribute once they have the skills to speak up, be heard, hear others out and show up fully?
