Is there a common ground between generations ?

New research from CCL shows that people of all ages essentially want the same things-even if they look or behave differently.

Jennifer Deal, author of the just-released book Retiring the Generation Gap: How Employees Young and Old Can Find Common Ground, and her CCL colleagues conducted a study involving thousands of leaders to reveal the truth about generational conflicts at work and what you can do about them.

They found that many of the assumptions about each generation were exaggerated or untrue.

Just as important, the research revealed that dealing effectively with people of other generations can be pretty straightforward.
