The Magic of GenZed
GenZed's world is fast with abundant source of information. They are fearless to express what they feel about this world and the people around them. They are angry for the corruption, global warming, pollution and crime. They are not people centric, they are not organization centric, all that matter to them is their work. They are able to do the work with double speed and accuracy without hanging on it much.

Time has come when 21st Century Born population have started buying, selling, meeting and deciding everything that used to be the big boy's business. Generation Z, as we call them, are the people born after 1995, who have not seen this world without wireless telecommunication. They would consider world without gadget a little awkward or even impossible. What had been a dead reality for genX or oldies is nearly unimaginable for generation Z.
When they find flat's doors locked they get pissed off and don't wait for the roommate to arrive. They call him on phone angrily and don't hesitate even to break the lock and buy new one immediately. GenZed's world is fast with abundant source of information. They are fearless to express what they feel about this world and the people around them. They are angry for the news of corruption, global environment, pollution and crime. They are not people centric, they are not organization centric, all that matter to them is their work. They are able to do the work with double speed and accuracy without hanging on it much. They are multitaskers. They text, talk, eat and work almost at the same time. They have adopted 'move on' mantra more perfectly. They love, hate, feel without getting emotionally fooled. What seems unbreakable to us they have already went past to it. They don't touch feet to show they respect, they don't bully you to show that they are mighty. They are gone if they are out of your sight. Their expressions are different and hell lot of confusing. It can cause you embarrassment if you failed to get them right.
A gadget in their hand helps them find who cares, loves, hates or talks about them. They don't identify political territories of the nation they belong to. Geographical distance is not a matter of concern anymore. The world is coming to them with no exaggeration of having come them from really far. This generation doesn’t judge on the basis of your hard work, all that they value is the result you procure. They know top is always vacant and no one can stay their without persistent efforts.
Fun and lively characteristics of GenZed have not witnessed scarcity. Their buying capacity has surpassed the buying capacity of last seven generations put together. They're vulnerable to new knowledge without bothering its source. This is fatal error because this generation still lacks one thing like every other generation i.e. patience. Earlier it was OK for youths to lose patience and explode but not anymore. Considering the speed and reach of Z's, it can be irrevocable and be a permanent damage if they lose patience. Challenge is who will coach them if no one matches them. Be it carefree attitude, risk taking ability and happy go lucky mantra. They are simply matchless, here is a little suggestion.
We need to match with them, they can't stay awake in the classrooms anymore. They need technological experiments to learn. They don't fear failures, they don't mind wrong experiments, and they’re fast in giving feedback. Young students today facilitate the environment to experiment with them and learn together. It is not essential to boss them around, they respect if you take them along in the voyage of knowledge hunt. They will irk you if you handle them like boss.
They need knowledge of their world not of the world gone past with us. They are more materialistic with the education. They want to know its utility; they just can't rot on it. Talk new with them...
GenZed is ambitious; they'll not mind creating parallel system. They will not hesitate to alter system neither they will wait for you to handover them the system. Sooner the better, they will tighten up the seat belt and drive it their way all we can and should do is to give them the way. The later we are the more damage will happen.
Non-leveled play ground. 80% of GenZ is compromised with the resources what 20% are enjoying. This world is racing towards a future where maximum operations will take place from such machines which are alien to less-privileged section of youngsters. Call it a baggage or call it responsibility but this never so wide gap between techie youth and malnourished youth will create more complex challenges. Agony is the GenZed is not properly informed about poverty of their counterpart. Will they consider them a responsibility or will they tag them as unnecessary baggage will define the course (read curse) of present over the future.
