Something interesting happens when you've been working in a chosen field for a while. One day, you look around and realize, wow. There are a lot of really young people working here.
And professional relationships that reach across generations can be a great thing, but it can also be fraught with misunderstanding and conflict.
For example, think of the ways many baby boomers and generation X'ers frequently label millennials. They're called entitled, coddled by over-bearing parents. They avoid hard work and they're not loyal to their employers.
Like all stereotypes, these are obviously unfair. And yet the fact that they're part of our consciousness suggests we've got a bit of a problem here.
"They're too entitled"
"They're not loyal"
"They just want to go home and be with their families"
"They don't want to work hard"
"They just want positive feedback"
"They're too plugged in"
