Sometimes the simplest insights yield the greatest dividends. One of the things I've noticed consistently in my facilitation efforts this year is the following:
When Baby Boomers think of community, they tend to place a premium on networking and interacting with people like them: homogeneity.
When Generation Xers and Millennials talk about community, they seem to place a premium on spending time with people not like them: heterogeneity.
This could have profound implications.
