Supervisors and Managers".
It seems there are five! different generations at work these days, and they work differently, so managers must know how to handle them.
With tongue in cheek, I list the generations:
- old farts (my generation) who hang on and bore everyone with their talk of the good old days
- boomers who bore everyone with their talk of the day they'll retire
- gen X who bore everyone with their self-pity over all the boomers who don't have the sense to retire and make way for new blood
- gen Y (millennials) who are busily searching for a new job away from all the bores.
- post millennials, who are practicing up to be boring bureaucrats as soon as they get out of diapers
Next subject on the horizon: the different cultures of America, how to deal with the cultural differences between New Jerseyans and Texans, Oregonians and Floridians. That should be good for a couple days training and a 5-digit fee to the consultant doing the training.
(I need to create a label for this: should I use "boondoggle" or "human relations".)
