Intergenerational conflict has been and will always be an issue in the workplace. But as legal careers grow longer (many attorneys are working well into their 60’s and even into their 70’s), these issues become more pronounced. Simply put, law firms are now home to multiple generations of attorneys. Similarly, with the explosion of digital communication in the last 2 decades, there are larger differences in how younger and older lawyers prefer to communicate.
In this episode, Kathleen Brady will be talking about how to navigate these differences. If you are a millennial, what should you expect from your baby boomer bosses? Where is the potential for conflict in how you communicate with partners at your firm. If you are a senior partner, what do you need to know about the younger attorneys in your firm. How can you establish better communication channels with this younger generation.
