Very interesting posting! Yes, today belongs to younger generation - the Gen X ! The youngsters who have done their higher education, fresh from the college without any experience and feelings, become the most wanted people in the Corporate World!
It is like a beautiful Car with a wonderful engine! But which is and where is the driving force? They are the Older generation with wisdom, experience and patience. Do you find how many young Managers have patience which is the most important of running the business successfully?
Thanks for giving a wonderful posting.

This is a beautiful article...everybody talks about youth & energy & freshness...hardly anybody looks to tap the wealth of knowledge & experience which the older employees possess.
Keep posting such stuff.... :D

Generation X persona are ultra-confident. They proudly proclaim 'been there, done that' and move on, having just skimmed over the surface of issues.
The elder generation however, have actually, through back-breaking effort, laid the foundation for what Gen. X take for granted. Judgement and the 'ability to know what to do when' does not come from book learning alone - it comes through varied experience, learning from mistakes and making sure they do not recur, the ability to expect the unexpected, and the realisation that no two people or two situations are exactly the same, and hence have to be handled differently.
The technological advances that Gen.X take for granted, if supported by the judgement and experience of the elder generation, can make a force that can endur and evolve ... Intelligent Quotient and Emotional Quotient together are unbeatable ...
