Generational differences can create a great deal of issues in the office.
  1. They do not communicate effectively. We say: Yes, texting is a perfectly normal form of communication and I should be able to work from home; it's more productive!
  2. They aren't clear on expectations. We say: I have no idea how/why this reporting structure make sense. What exactly is my job description?
  3. They don't respect my opinion all the time. We say: We're on the same team! Stop hiding my genius!
This is called workplace conflict. Workplace conflict can occur when one party does not understand the other party's perspective. It is a natural part of business, and is even good for business! Let's be honest, if there weren't workplace conflict, we would not create change or develop new ideas. As millennials, we need to learn how to understand different perspectives and channel this conflict into constructive actions that make impact, not chaos. Emerge members, join us on for Resolution Revolution: A Millennial Guide to Conflict Management to work on ways to deal with workplace conflict.
