"Why Generational Diversity is the Ultimate Competitive Advantage," Ryan Jenkins

Fascinating article by Ryan Jenkins for Inc. in which he examines:
Innovation
"Like-minded teams maintain; diverse teams innovate."
Diversity of Thought
"
Because Millennials fundamentally think and approach problem-solving differently than previous generations, generational diversity is a very powerful version of cognitive diversity."
Managing Generational Diversity
Dennis Kennedy, CEO of the National Diversity Council says, "Managing generational diversity is key for organizations to gain a competitive advantage and make a positive impact on employee morale, productivity, and retention."
My takeaway from this article is that managers and C-suite executives have no choice but to adjust, adapt and customize their approach to working with multiple generations... a one-size fits all approach no longer works.
