      Lindsay Lohan And Other Gen-Y Workers May Work Harder If Flowers Are Present

      Article Description:
      ====================

      Lindsay Lohan is a bonafide member of Generation Y (Gen-Y for
      short), which is comprised of those individuals born after 1978.
      While being young and full of fresh ideas and unlimited energy is
      a wonderful thing, Baby Boomers don't always find Gen-Yers quite
      so endearing in the workplace. In fact, it seems they just
      naturally butt heads.

      Lindsay Lohan And Other Gen-Y Workers May Work Harder If Flowers Are Present
      Copyright � 2006 Wesley Berry, AAF

      Lindsay Lohan is a bonafide member of Generation Y (Gen-Y for
      short), which is comprised of those individuals born after 1978.
      While being young and full of fresh ideas and unlimited energy is
      a wonderful thing, Baby Boomers don't always find Gen-Yers quite
      so endearing in the workplace. In fact, it seems they just
      naturally butt heads.

      In today's workplace, Baby Boomers typically are in the power
      positions, like managers and supervisors. They've worked hard to
      get there and, according to HR magazine, they're sometimes
      offended by the way Gen-Yers seem to think they know everything.
      And, in return, Gen-Yers don't understand why their bosses treat
      them like "newbies." However, since those in the Gen-Y group
      number more than 80 million, employers will just have to find a
      way to make their working relationships, well...work!

      Sommer Kehril, a consultant at The Centre for Organization
      Effectiveness in San Diego offered several tips to make things
      run more smoothly in the article she wrote for HR magazine, had
      these suggestions to offer to Baby Boomer bosses:

      1. Rather than putting Gen-Yers through formal training programs
      that they sometimes find demeaning, offer on-the-job training
      through "informal" but sincere mentoring. Tell them about
      situations you've encountered personally and how you overcame
      them. But, beware, Kehril says, "They have a discerning eye for
      the difference between 'fake' mentoring and genuine
      interest."

      2. When giving instructions to Gen-Yers, ask them to respond by
      confirming the directions you just gave in an email or voice mail
      message. Keep in mind that Gen-Yers were raised with shorter
      articles, television programs, and news reports, so their
      attention spans can sometimes suffer.

      3. Assign some authority and responsibility to Gen-Yers. Giving
      them some responsibility helps to instill a sense of pride in a
      job well done and keeps them engaged in the business at hand.

      Those are definitely great suggestions, but those of us in the
      floral industry would like to offer one more-use flowers and
      green plants to decorate your workplace. In a recent study
      conducted at A&M University, flowers and plants were
      scientifically proven to boost the productivity of employees.
      Participants in the study were divided into three categories: (1)
      those working in places with no decoration; (2) those working in
      offices decorated with sculptures; and (3) those working in
      buildings decorated with flowers and green plants. At the end of
      the study, those who worked around flowers produced more ideas,
      were more innovative, and were better able to creatively solve
      problems.

      So, if Lindsay Lohan's increasingly publicized inability to get
      along with her coworkers is to be solved, perhaps her employers
      should consider following the tips offered in HR magazine and
      send Ms. Lohan some flowers to decorate her dressing room. Gen-Y
      or not, flowers are always a pleasure to have around, even for
      big movie stars.
