It’s no secret men and women communicate differently. But in this multi-generational workplace, it’s no surprise that there’s also a gap in the way different generations communicate.
When you combine gender with generational differences and factor in personality type preferences, it’s no wonder we sometimes struggle to communicate as effectively as we intend to. It can be a complicated map to navigate.
The tools and technologies available to millennials are a lot different than those that were available to Baby Boomers also. Because of these tools, communication has become more complex. Yet it’s at the core of how people get things done. And it’s one of the most crucial things you can get better at from a soft skills perspective as it impacts your everyday and your work relationship.
This week’s feature article explains how communication can help or hinder your career. We’re also sharing additional resources and information on the communication gender gap and general communication tips on our Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
