Zero to Hero Weekly | Issue 14 — Respect and Understanding

When your team is diverse, figuring out where everyone is coming from can be difficult. It’s not only diversity in culture. Today, a typical office environment can include members from four different generations. The amount of diversity is both an opportunity and also a challenge in itself.

Welcome to the fourteenth issue of Zero to Hero Weekly.

I have four music pieces already. I’ll add more in time. That’s also a good motivation factor for me to put my heiney on that bench and study piano. Win-win 😀.

And there are ways to reap the benefits of a multi-cultural, multi-generational work environment. Here’s how:
