Last month, I had the opportunity to attend a thought leader session at CUNAs America’s Credit Union Conference & Expo in New York City on generational differences.

During the session, author and Johnson Training Group partner Meagan Johnson asked the audience to create a list of words that described someone in Generation Y. I listened as the audience described my generation as tech savvy, lazy, irresponsible, lacking in communications skills and respect and impulsive. Johnson then made what I thought was a great point. She displayed a list of similar characteristics and then showed that this was a list taken from a 1968 Time magazine article describing the baby boom generation.
