Mind the Generation Gap: Managing a Team of All Ages

In today’s business world, the millennial workforce is in full effect, and is now the largest demographic in the United States labor force. Now combined with those that make up Generation X and baby boomers, it is not uncommon to see a rise in tension within certain workplaces.

Differences in age often lead to complications in working environments, with power struggles occurring from time to time, or just general tension being felt throughout. Younger employees may see their older peers as stubborn or unwilling to change, while the more seasoned employees may see the younger staff immature or entitled. Whatever the cause of the issue may be, you as a manager should act accordingly and ease tension that could potentially boil over and affect business.

In order to have your team working closely together, you’ll want to bridge this generational gap. A factor that should be considered is the fact that many people do not want to escape their comfort zones in a work environment, sticking to their own schedules, and rarely reaching out for help without the involvement of upper management. It is fairly understandable. More veteran employees are much less likely to seek help from those younger than them, as it may seem like personal attack on their egos. On the other hand, younger employees could harbor a sense of intimidation when faced with the more experienced team members, preventing them from voicing their opinions.

A lack of collaboration can lead to many missed opportunities within an office. You being in a leadership role should seek ways to spark collaboration rather than wait for your team members to get comfortable with one another. Create a program in which more experienced employees can sit down with newer hires and mentor them in areas where they may be struggling or just unfamiliar with. An intimate one-on-one setting is great for generating collaboration. The younger employee involved will gain a great amount of insight, while he or she will also be able to teach the older employee about advancements in technology that may not have been understood before. It’s a mutually beneficial practice that often time bridges that generational gap.

A company’s culture has been considered one of the more important aspects of success. An environment in which everyone involved is happy, productive, and dedicated is one bound for success, thus stressing the importance of a company culture that is accommodating to every employee. Open floor plans, company outings, and opportunities to show your appreciation for all your employees’ hard work is a way to have your team members subconsciously relate to one another.

Today, more than ever, employees of numerous generations are working together in offices of all kinds. While some may embrace this workplace diversity, there are many that find it difficult to work alongside others of drastically different ages. Consider any of the strategies mentioned above in order to achieve success. Closing this generational gap should be a priority for those in management positions in order to ensure a productive, successful business.

The Value of Grit in the Business World

Many people may argue back and forth whether the term ‘grit’ can be defined as a constant drive and determination toward reaching one’s goals, or having an unbreakable spirit and strong character. A third argument could be made stating that the two claims go hand in hand. Whatever definition you agree with, there is no denying that having grit in the world of business is an incredibly valuable trait.

One characteristic that comes with true grit is courage. Whether you are in an executive position, a managerial position, or even an entry-level employee, having the ability to make courageous decisions can define success, so long as the pros and cons are weighed beforehand. Being able to properly manage any feelings of fear or doubt allows you to clearly see all possible outcomes before following through with a strategy you may be considering.

The trait of courage is enormously beneficial in business. Mistakes and failures are bound to happen, but letting that deter you from making those decisions in the first place is guaranteed failure in itself. Getting outside of your comfort zone is the first step in achieving greatness. In order to do that however, you must first develop courage as a daily habit. Like many other skills, it must be practiced. Once you have reached a level of courageousness that allows you to thrive in the business world, you can be defined as an individual possessing grit.

Making bold decisions is indeed a commendable action in business, but not all follow through. Dedication and perseverance are mandatory if one is to adapt grit. Never expect an immediate decision to pay off, well, immediately. It is a rare occurrence, and to truly achieve goals that you’ve set, you’ll want to dedicate as much time and effort as you can into them, refusing to stop until they are complete. Obviously, setting long-term goals implies that nothing will be achieved overnight, so implementing the mindset of working on a regular basis for long periods of time should be done early on.

Throughout all of this, exuding confidence is another way to display grit in the world of business. While it is not necessarily required, it can go a long way, and in turn, lead to more courageous decisions. Business leaders who doubt themselves often fail to reach their full potentials. Being confident in your every move not only benefits your overall production, but shows others that you truly understand the decisions you are making and why you are making them. However, you must be able to separate excellence from perfection. Those who strive for nothing but perfection are often unsatisfied no matter how great the achievement.

Though these are just a few, possessing characteristics that can be defined as grit can take you much further in the business world than you may think. Employees of all levels who exude confidence in their decision making skills, courage in times where it is required, and perseverance in achieving goals display incredible professionalism, which is often noticed by their superiors.

The Hottest Food Trends in New York This Year

The culinary world is an ever changing microcosm of innovation, styles, and trends. Nowhere is that more evident than in New York City. In order for newly developed restaurants to stake their claims in the nation’s largest concrete jungle, if they aren’t simply relying on exquisite taste to brand themselves, they must join the innovators and trendsetters. With that said, below are the year’s biggest food trends in New York City thus far.

Asian Fusion

A growing trend that can actually be found in several cities is the combination of Japanese and Mexican food. Restaurants like Takumi Taco in Chelsea and Las Olas Sushi Bar and Grill in Hoboken capture the eclectic flavors of Japan and the traditional spices of Mexico. However, the merging of tastes does not end there. Several places around New York city seek to mix sushi, traditional Chinese, American dishes, and more. Another growing dish that was spawned from this frenzy of combinations is the sushi taco; one of the most popular meals in innovative Asian restaurants today.

Adult Desserts

A popular trend among millennials today is somehow incorporating their favorite childhood snacks into everyday cuisine, adding an “adult” twist. Many restaurants today have picked up on this fad, and have done just that. From alcoholic milkshakes to lava cakes, New York City has begun incorporating more creativity in its dessert menus. Odd Fellows Ice Cream for example, has a brioche bun ice cream sandwich, black chocolate stout ice cream, and a spiced pineapple sorbet.

The food was inspired by Napadol’s grandmother herself, who was an avid cooker in northeast Thailand. For a homey meal in a modern environment, Samui offers the best of both worlds.

Who has ever said that New York doesn’t need any more Italian restaurants? Lady’s is the newest addition to Brooklyn’s Italian food scene with a wide array of dishes to choose from at decent prices.
