Today’s American workforce is unique, and more than ever before leaders are being asked to work with increasingly diverse intergenerational teams. The resulting communication, conflict management, engagement, recruitment and retention challenges can sometimes seem daunting. Depending upon your generational perspective, you may at times feel as though you need an interpreter to understand your staff’s or client’s behavior! Leaders who will succeed in this environment will be ones who are able to cultivate generational understandings that allow them to leverage the talents, skills and abilities of all team members.
In this highly interactive session, you will:
- Identify the common drivers and values of the four major workforce generations and how they affect behavior in the workplace;
- Learn how your own generational identity influences your leadership
- Have a heightened awareness of generational differences that will enable you to work more effectively in a multigenerational workforce.
Participants will leave with a newfound appreciation for the creativity, strength and opportunities intergenerational differences can provide to their workplaces.
