Bridging the divide over 'bells and whistles' and FD training

Managing generational differences is difficult, but there are ways to bring a group together to function as a team

In this episode of What's YOUR Problem? Chief Goldfeder tackles this reader question:

Many departments seem to have a generational difference these days, including ours. Older members don’t want to train and think every expense is “bells and whistles.” I want everyone included and to bridge these gaps – bringing a group together and becoming a team. Could you offer me some advice to make this happen?"
