We now have up to 5 generations in the workplace. Baby boomers, Gen Z, Millennials, you name it. Each generation views the world based on the time frame they moved through history; what were the popular tv shows, what new technology was released, and what was happening worldwide. This creates a 'generation gap' that is not necessarily negative; it is an opportunity to learn. Dr. Tim Elmore joins Kevin to discuss how we can get the most out of each generation vs. putting up with each other. At the end of the day, every generation wants to be led with humility, respect, and curiosity.
