I came across a piece on Gen Y this morning that I found via @RandyConley. I’m never a fan of throwing people into presumptive boxes, but there is no denying certain generational differences; particularly strengths and weaknesses. In studying these differences, one is better able to relate to and help develop young people.
Inter-generational relations at home, in schools, on athletic fields, and in the work place can often lead to conflict and hostility. A better understanding of differences may help people in parenting, teaching, coaching, and managing those who are a generation or two younger.
Here is a link to the Gen Y piece that includes a discussion of their strengths and weaknesses as well as an attempt to shed light on certain myths related to this group.
When you have time, you may want to investigate the other videos, articles, and written works I have also linked.
