Podcast 98 - Working Across Generations

This week on The Good Practice Podcast, Ross Garner and Owen are joined by Hello2morrow's Chloe Walton to ask how far we can generalise 'millennials'.

We explore just some of the benefits to be found when organisations encourage conversations across generations, and ask what those of us in L&D, HR and OD do to facilitate these conversations.

Hello2morrow can be found at www.hello2morrow.co.uk.

Her research can be found at: www.hello2morrow.co.uk/research.

Ross' John Adams quote is nicely dissected by Freakonomics at: freakonomics.com/2011/08/25/john-adams-said-it-first/

The podcast that Owen recommended was Malcolm Gladwell's interview with Adam Grant, available at: overcast.fm/+NG9LuTWQE 

The article Chloe referenced on the home field advantage was: zidbits.com/2012/01/is-home-field-advantage-real/

And the travelling musical Ross recommended was Isle of Love, featuring the music of Adam Ross and Randolph's Leap. Tickets are available at: rightlines.net/rightlines/the-isle-of-love/ 

Randolph's Leap are on Spotify at: open.spotify.com/artist/2rdghy8NeNCFZcDyAlkRFb.
