Chances are that your company’s workforce is made of people of different ages and generations. The differing communication style of these two generations can prove to be an asset — if managed correctly.


Much has been written stereotyping both the millennial and older generations, but the real insight lies in how they work together – if given the right environment.


At the core of the Millennial energy is potential.

  • Relatively fresh, especially in the working world.
  • Able to work incredibly hard when they are motivated to do so.
  • Intuitively understand technology – they are “digital natives.”
  • Want to see the world become a better place for themselves and their future families.
  • Want mentors who can guide them and explain what mistakes to avoid


At the core of older energy is experience.

  • Spent decades learning.
  • Intangible wisdom that comes from decades of forming and living through relationships, projects, and experiences.
  • Tend to have an uneven relationship with technology.
  • Want to see the world become a better place for their kids and grandkids.
  • Want to feel like they have a direct and tangible way to give back and pass along the things they’ve learned.

K.I.T.T. – a dream car of the 80s was SF back then. Self-driving and connected cars are thought to hit the road in the next 5-10 years.
