Let’s Fix Work Episode 63
This week I welcome Lindsey Pollak to the Let’s Fix Work lounge. Lindsey is a multigenerational workplace expert, keynote speaker, and author of the book, The Remix. She is one of the earliest people to talk about the Strauss-Howe Generational Theory. She does not like generational shaming or stereotypes. I just love Lindsey and we have a super fun show in store for you today.
In this episode, we talk about how five generations are working in the workforce right now. Plus, we talk in-depth about how we can take the best from all five generations, learn from one another and actually have some fun in the world of work. So if you’d like to hear two Gen Xers being a little nostalgic and talking about work, you’re going to love this episode of Let’s Fix Work.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
- What inspired Lindsey to write her book, The Remix
- “Rules” of the workspace, one size fits none philosophy and the “solution” for workspaces
- Current trends in the workforce, including personalization and transparency
- Some assumptions made about today’s workforce, like everyone wants to work from home
- What we are missing from work in today’s society
- Shaming and blaming of generations, and re-entering the workforce after some time
