Length: 6.5 hours – One day

 Abstract:

This eye-opening training session takes the guesswork out of working across the generations and offers tactical advice to best work with your multi-generational team.

Each generation comes with different assets that can help your team thrive, if you know how to unlock that potential. Understanding generational differences is critical to making your organization run like a well-oiled machine. Knowing these differences, and taking the right action creates harmony, mutual respect, and joint effort. It helps eliminate suspicion, mistrust, and isolation that are often being experienced today. Leaders will be able to leverage the unique perspectives of each generation to increase business. With employee engagement at the forefront of every business, understanding how to work with each generation is integral to engaging and retaining every employee. The CULTURE of your organization will improve and generate a happy work environment.

In this unforgettable interactive training session, the group brainstorms the key differences between the generations and the defining moments that rocked their world and shaped them. This course provides participants with ideas and advice to implement and practice immediately to help bridge the gap between all generations.
