Acknowledge
Talk about generational differences.

Appreciate
Focus on the “why,” not on the “what,” and the common needs.

Adjust
Agree on how to communicate different approaches.

Advantage
Maximize the strengths of each generation.

Assert
Determine which option will yield the best results when “flexing” isn’t enough.
