For BabyBoomers Sometimes It’s Best to “Listen Down”
Recently I attended a conference where I met two young women who had just attended a workshop for millennials. One was a millennial and the other a Gen-Xer . Both expressed concern about the lack of clarity and focus of the panel. The workshop, they said, simply did not speak to them. I asked them about their concerns and found they had some great ideas to what could have been done differently. We then discussed their workplace situation. It seems both faced barriers and constant challenges from baby boomers who were still stuck on how things were done 20 years ago. The boomers, they said, would not even try to . listen to their ideas.
