In 2018, there is potential for up to five generations to be in the workplace at any given time. Differing life experiences and upbringings may be contributing factors that cause conflict in the workplace. Issues that arise in the workplace may also be caused by unmet expectations and negative perceptions due to generational stereotypes surrounding career management, organizational loyalty, motivation, and work values and attitude (Meuze & Mlodzik, 2010). By adopting and practicing four virtues of stoicism in everyday leadership roles: justice, courage, wisdom, and self-control, leaders may help to alleviate and mitigate some of the workplace conflict experienced in the modern day workplace by fostering a culture of trust, enhancing emotional intelligence, and improving listening skills.
