Winning in a Crossgenerational Workplace

In today’s multigenerational workforce, it has become increasingly important to understand the different workplace approaches for each generation. Acknowledging the historical context of each generation, and understanding generational perceptions, will provide a platform for stronger communication and more effective teamwork at your organization. The new blend of generations, race, gender and ethnicity has created a workforce that is more diverse than ever before. For the first time, we have four generations working side by side. This generational diversity creates challenges as well as a great potential for opportunity and growth. By learning to value the strengths and viewpoints of each of the four generations, organizations can create leading cross-generational teams. This half-day course provides participants with the opportunity to explore the distinguishing characteristics of each generation and the factors influencing their differing points of view.

By attending this course, participants will:

  • Understand the 4 Generations at their organization
  • Define the historical factors that defined each generation
  • Understand the different perceptions of each generation
  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the values, motivations, and preferred work styles for each generation
  • Develop new approaches to dealing with intergenerational conflict
  • Define their personal role in becoming a collaborative and leading cross- generational team
