Presumes workers are internally motivated
Hands off approach
Not a good style for every situation
You have to know the style of person
Veterans – will do what the dr tells them to, but maybe not you. Don’t change very well… Told stories of his dad
Baby boomers – hard workers, come in early, stays late. Invented casual Friday, i.e. work hard and play hard.
Generation X – Pearl Jam and what not. They like to get a task, leave them alone, don’t tell them how to do it. “Latchkey Kids.” Like to have a task and be left alone, don’t tell them how to do it. Don’t like to be micro managed.
Millennial Generation – have reputation of being hard workers, good task people. Get things done when given a task.
