Maybe you can understand them. Maybe you can adapt. More likely, you'll refuse to change with the times, stay stuck in your own ways, then wonder why your own promotions start slowing and why fewer people are interested in working with you. One day, when your company changes direction, they'll find you easy to shed in the layoff, because you haven't really contributed much in a decade and don't fit into the culture well. You no longer see eye-to-eye with management, and just mutter around about how everyone but you is too busy not knowing anything to ask you what you know.
This does not end well for you. The old person whining about young people never ends up well. You're not the future, they are. Old CEOs whining about young people see their companies struggle to hire as other companies offer more compelling visions. But old employees are even more screwed, as they just start getting passed over routinely for more likeable, better leaders that can actually connect with those around them. You can look inside yourself and change, or you can keep whining here about things that make you sound like Clint Eastwood (circa 2019, not circa 1972.) You're a step away from saying that they don't own homes because they enjoy avocado toast, while ignoring the 5-6 figure student loan debt other generations put upon them.
Oh the irony of your post.
someone has no clue what irony means
A mask is not a political statement. It's an IQ test.
