Last week I wrote about generational stereotypes in the workplace - how often times we as managers use generational models to simplify those we work with. Millennials are the tech whizzes and social media experts, while Traditionalists are sound financial managers. Generation Xers are risk-takers, while Baby Boomers are more risk averse.
However, is that always the case?
An understanding of generational differences can be beneficial in working with your peers and subordinates at work; however, they may often be based on inaccurate assumptions that do more harm than good.
Based on your experience - do you find generational stereotypes in the workplace to be helpful or hurtful?
