The harsh reality of today’s workforce is that it is too diverse to have a “one size fits all” style of management. However, the good news is that it can be understood by categorizing the different types of employees and knowing their working styles, personalities, temperaments, and other human elements that make them unique.
Very often, we see that millennials keep the end in mind, but are open to the way in which they go about achieving the goal. As highly mission-driven individuals, they believe that even if a strategy is charted it may not be the most sustainable way to run a business in real-time.
It is very important to understand what the bottlenecks or barriers to effective communication are. In order to solve any problem, we must acknowledge there is a problem and understand its root cause.
There are several different kinds of barriers that lead to a
communication gap in an organization. Let’s start with the most obvious one – the generation barrier. People’s experiences frame the way they perceive and communicate. Older generations of employees may have a tendency to disregard feedback from younger generations simply because they feel their experience
has contributed to their decision.
