While generalizations can occasionally be problematic, there are arguably observable differences in attitudes and expectations related to employment and employers between employees from different generations and age groups. Describe some of these differences and discuss how leaders can use their understanding of these differences to enhance the work experience for all employees and improve the performance of their organization.
Can a leader adapt their leadership style as they deal with employees from different generations and age groups and, maybe just as important, should they? Lastly are there lessons here for a leader working with any diverse workforce?
