Our Generations Are Not That Different

"Gen Z wants prompt responses, transparency and regular communication!" "Millennials want flexible work arrangements and to have purpose in their work!"

This may be a surprise, but these are things that ALL PEOPLE want. The only difference is that younger generations speak out about what they need and want with more freedom.

We don't need to shake our heads and say "Kids these days!" while we grumble about what they are "demanding." We need to focus on providing work with meaning, being transparent, communicating promptly and frequently and being flexible when we can. We are all part of the same human race. Let's treat everyone with the same respect and consideration.
