Managing Across Generations (1-day)
Motivate employees with what matters to them
Many executives and managers have trouble pinpointing how to best recruit, manage, motivate, and work with the multiple generations that make up their team. While careful consideration must be taken to avoid overgeneralizing large demographics, research has uncovered important trends and insights that can help to better understand the diversity of Millennials, Generation Xers and Baby Boomers. This practical and fun learning lab will equip participants with tools to understand what different generations want from their work life and how to accommodate difference in communication styles, work habits, motivational levers, and styles of managing up, down and across the organization. Participants will leave the workshop with greater confidence and abilities to work with and lead a diverse, smooth-functioning team.
