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 a multi-generational workforce. While careful consideration must be taken to avoid overgeneralizing demographics, research has uncovered important trends that can help to better understand the diversity of Millennials, Generation X and Baby Boomers. This practical and fun learning lab will equip participants with tools to understand what different generations want from their work environment and how to accommodate their communication styles, work habits, and motivational levers. Participants will leave the workshop with greater confidence and the ability to work with and lead a diverse, smoothly functioning team.
