Diverse teams carry diverse work and styles. As a generational speaker and trainer for over a decade, I have experienced first-hand how wide the communication gap can be on multi-generational teams. 

In fact, 83 percent of Generation Z workers prefer to engage with managers in person, yet 82 percent of managers believe their Gen Z employees prefer to communicate via instant message.

The proliferation of mobile and ubiquitous connectivity has created an abundance of new communication channels. Email, text, chat, video call and social collaboration are relatively new forms of communication that didn’t exist for most of the 20th century.

There’s no right or wrong way to combat the isolation and brought on by the times we live in. (Well, OK, we can probably all agree that plowing through a shipment of Oreos in one sitting isn’t the most ideal way.)

But shows that there are two vital ingredients to maintaining and wellness: human connection and the feeling of doing something positive. And both of these come into play in the process of creating something with other people.

Every business sector has jargon. It’s largely known that you shouldn’t use those terms much outside of that field or people won’t know what you are talking about. Beyond jargon, there are other things that people should not say if they want to reach their potential. The things we say can have a profound impact not only on those we say them to but also to ourselves.

I lead from my gut with my career decisions, and so far, that has served me tremendously. It got me thinking about how many other entrepreneurs lead from their intuition as well.
