Great short piece looking at generation gaps and the perception that this matters but fundamentally it supports the fact that generations don't impact on the work place!
"It’s not that people born after 1980 are narcissists, it’s that young people are narcissists, and they get over themselves as they get older.”
There are plenty of examples to cite. For one, a group of researchers from George Washington University and the Department of Defense analyzed more than 20 published and unpublished studies examining generational differences and concluded that meaningful differences among generations probably do not exist in the workplace. The small differences that do appear are likely attributable to factors such as stage of life more than generational membership. The researchers go on to say, “targeted organizational interventions addressing generational differences may not be effective.” As Elspeth Reeve wrote in The Atlantic in 2013 “It’s not that people born after 1980 are narcissists, it’s that young people are narcissists, and they get over themselves as they get older.”
