Generational Conflict arises whenever the interests or ideals of one generation collide openly with those of another. With people living longer these days - and thus working longer - it is often possible to find representatives of as many as four generations working together in one organization. This can lead to challenges and frustrations.
Typically, a generation - sometimes called a "cohort group" - includes the people born over a span of twenty years who share characteristics, including some shared childhood and coming-of-age experiences, a set of common behavioral and attitudinal traits, and a sense of common identity.
