Closing The Generational Gap: Leveraging Generational Diversity For Competitive Advantage


Session Description: 

For the first time in history, there are 4, in some cases 5, generations working alongside one another in the workplace. Differences across these generations can create frustration, tension, and breakdowns in communication. These problems can stall productivity and create hostile work environments that lead to disengagement and dissatisfaction. Creating a culture where generational differences are welcomed and even leveraged can result in higher performance, happier employees and better places to work.


This unique and highly engaging workshop engages every attendee, no matter the age, as they learn about the differences and similarities across the 4 generations in the workforce, and how each can be leveraged to create cross-generational synergy that drives competitive advantage. Attendees will walk away understanding general characteristics of each generation, why these characteristics are as they are, how they tend to show up at work and how these things can benefit the top and bottom lines of the organization when leveraged properly. Attendees will also learn best practices to increase cross-generational synergy in their workplace.
