Being Generationally Savvy: Working Effectively with all Generations

PL # 12176.
Starting on 11 Jun 2019
Cancellation permitted until 05/06/2019

Event registrations closed on 6/06/2019


Have you noticed your newer employees feel and look and act differently than novice colleagues you remember?  Are you hearing of communication challenges between colleagues of different ages?  Are you becoming aware more employees want a life-work balance vs. a work-life balance?  Generational factors might be coming into play.  Who are these four generations in our workplaces?  What are their strengths and needs?  What structures and communication protocols should we design to work well with them all?  And, what knowledge do we need to help every group thrive?
Participants will learn how to:
  • Formulate a better understanding of each generation’s motivations and needs in the workplace
  • Prepare tools and structures that will translate into better more effective collaboration for generationally diverse teams
  • Become more skilled at creating a climate of inclusion for all generations
  • Adapt one’s language skills to communicate effectively with different generations
