Overview

Better Manage Your Multigenerational Employees

With four generations in the workforce today, tensions are inevitable but problems are avoidable.

These generations think differently, vote differently, buy differently, and dress differently. Work ethic, respect, turnover, dress code, communication tools, fun at work can create real problems for managers and organizations, or they can provide opportunities to bring the generations together.

The bottom line is that what worked in the past doesn’t work now.

Members of one generation will often grumble about another generation using stereotypes that mire a team in needless sticking points. This webcast will show you a practical approach to get the four generations working together.

What You Will Learn

 

In this webcast, you’ll learn:

  • The most important stereotype-busting “ghost stories” that explain why each generation thinks the way they do
  • The 12 most frequent generational tensions and what organizations are doing about them
  • A proven 5-step process that gets the generations figuring out for themselves how to work through sticking points and get more done together.

This program is full of laughter and insight. Come and see yourself, your customers, your people, and your future and walk away with practical ideas and plans for increasing your ability to get things done across the generations.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
