During last week's industry events in Atlanta, an industry veteran expressed their frustration with the younger generation and their different approach and perspective of "work." It came up that most training is geared toward veterans learning to work with them and it should be the other way around. As we talked, I decided to spend more of my time engaging the younger people that attended the various events. This was a great experience and here is my conclusion. The younger generations that are beginning to enter our industry are more equipped to deal with the speed of change and the volume of information than most of us veterans of the industry. We have to stop trying to make them fit in our world and begin understanding theirs. Our role as veterans is to provide context and guidance, but mentoring needs to go both ways for us all to win.
