Here’s the episode:

In this eye-opening episode, Cort Rudolph of St. Louis University pulls back the curtain on generational differences at work. Simply put, they don’t exist. And it’s tough to even make the claim that generations themselves exist. We discuss these topics, drawing upon Cort’s recently published article on the topic in the Journal of Business and Psychology. Specifically, we explore:

  • What are generations, do they even exist, and do they matter?

  • Myths about generations and generational differences

  • Implications for people, leaders, and organizations
