This is an interesting response to a question posed by Stephen Baker from Business Week.
@diabolicalpnthr responded (in 2 tweets): “It kills productivity to have to explain social media and new technologies to the older generation in an office. It’s hard to get an older… coworker to try new things, so you end up a)explaining all the time or b)doing it for them.”
Yikes!! As someone who is out there training all of the time this is disappointing. I hope that my training hasn’t gone without making a change. I also don’t agree with this negative view! There are always people who don’t want to learn new things or who take longer than others to train, but that doesn’t mean that we should give up.
