If you’re an older person, perhaps you’ve said to yourself, the kids these says: what’s wrong with them?  And if you’re in Gen Z or younger, you might well have questioned the wisdom of older people.

Chris De Santis, an independent organizational behavior practitioner, speaker, and author, says differences of any kind—is reflected in the title of his newest book, “Why I Find you Irritating.”

“Prepare people to succeed in the work they’re doing,” Mr. De Santis says. “Leverage the strength they have in the work because work today is a team sport.”
