Closing the Generational & Digital Divide: Empowering Millennials, Boomers, and Gen X’ers in the Workplace
Are there people where you work, older or younger than you, who just don’t “get it?” They’re from another time, it seems, so they don’t understand what you do, or what you’re trying to do. Does at feel like there’s a battle going on sometimes? Or maybe even an all out war?
Interactions and communications among Baby Boomers, Gen X’ers, and Millennials in the workplace has devolved into an “us” vs. “them” mentality. And with Gen Z entering the workforce, it seems it’s only getting worse over time.
If this issue isn’t addressed, your organization or team will never achieve its goals; worse yet, people on the team, or in the organization, will feel frustrated and held back. No wonder it’s hard to reach individual or team goals!
I speak about – and do webinars and workshops – on this topic. And I’ve written a book! OK, Boomer: Revelations of a Baby Boomer Working With Millennials.
My workshops and online sessions help teams:
- understand the workplace issues of Millennials, Gen X’ers, and Baby Boomers
- see the cultural conflicts and their effects on employees
- identify current trends and tools – and why they haven’t worked “in the real world”
- learn new ways to navigate and resolve this cultural challenge
Here’s what people are saying about the new book!
Janet Granger has written the most comprehensive, yet succinct commentary on the workplace issues caused by the digital intergenerational divide and, most importantly, what employees and managers of all ages can do to close the gaps dividing them. While her findings are based on science and hard facts, she includes interesting anecdotes that are very relatable and makes this an easy and informative read. This book and Janet’s workshops could also be very helpful to HR professionals who are trying to help their clients function better, both as leaders and as team members. – Doreen Collins, HR Executive, GE (Retired)
Ok Boomer highlights the underlying issue of a lack of trust between generations due to a lack of mutual understanding and historical context. Janet brings empathy and education to both sides of the conversation, which will inevitably result in better working relationships and overall success in the organization. A must read for intergenerational teams! – Rachel L. Rider, Executive Coach & Leadership Consultant
