Generations in the Workplace

We now operate in a world with four generations working side by side.  Understanding and appreciating each generation, their life experiences that shape beliefs and behaviors, motivators, and how to work effectively is key to building trusting work relationships that lead to greater productivity and results. 

This workshop is intended to bring together the generations within your company to participate in a discussion, or series of discussions, on a variety of topics that are most relevant and pressing to you. 

Intended Audience 

All levels.  The ideal audience is a combination of workers from all generations.  Program can be customized as a 2 hour overview, an in-depth 4 hour workshop, or as a series of conversations on leadership topics.
