Dr. Collins presented a webinar about how people of any generation can effectively engage and interact with people of other generations in the workplace. She showed some examples of general perceptions regarding each generation and shared that people often compare the next generation coming up as not fitting their familiar mold.
These generation categories include:
- Baby Boomers
- Gen X
- Gen Z
“Cuspers” are those who were born three to five years between generations.
Keep in mind that everyone is unique, and no one fits a standard mold. Here are some ideas to communicate between generations:
- Talk to the other generations to find out what is important to them and why.
- Appreciate the differences and use the strengths of each generation.
- Learn how people prefer communications and how they prefer to obtain their information.
- Give feedback as needed and desired.
