  • 6. Multigenerational Workplace with Gen Y Leadership <ul><li>“ A lot of Millennials find themselves working with or managing people who are older than them. If this is the case for you, you will want to be careful of having an attitude of superiority… even if you feel you know exactly what needs to be done, ask your co-workers for input and be open to learning.

Show an interest in his or her family or hobbies. Once you get to talking about things you have in common, the age difference won’t seem quite as significant </li></ul><ul><li>- Alexandra Levit </li></ul>
