Stiff necks and fixed ideas

The people in charge in most organizations today are part of the Baby Boomer generation, brought up by parents born before World War II, and trained in schools and universities during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Slow Leadership has posted an interesting article today on this subject that plagues the younger generation work force. While plagues tends to be a bit sensational, it is a common theme among many contemporary authors. I will also say that the public school system of not only the 1950s but today were designed in the late 1800s. While I feel that hopefully, we are  seeing some positive changes in society, this article gives an interesting and increasingly heard perspective on this issue that entangles so many aspects of our lives.
