Mind the Gap

Baby Boomers find themselves having to make unexpected choices.

Generation X and Millennials expect to find themselves having choices.

It's a tremendous difference:

Two generations expecting at a young age to have a smorgasboard of opportunities available to them.

One generation unsure what to expect at an age when their only anticipated choice, retirement, seems less feasible.

That difference is perhaps one of the most significant chasms of the generational divide. At least that's how it seems to me after I had the chance to be one of the speakers today as Kansas State University's 11th Annual Leadership Seminar.
