There is definitely a generational gap between us and them and the more this gap is bridged the smoother and more effective communication flows.

- Baby Boomers: These are people who were born after world war II roughly between 1946- 1967
- GenerationX: Born early to mid 1960s to early 1980s.
- GenerationY: Often called mellinials. Born 1980 to late 1990s
- Generation Z: Born 2000 on
Read on to learn more about the generational differences between the four categories.
