How to Bridge the Generational Gaps at Work

The Millenial generation has arrived, and they've brought with them a new attitude. To manage them effectively, you need to understand their wants, needs, and what motivates them to perform well.

There is a revolution going on at work—where all work is meaningful and accommodating of our personal lives. In this Webcast, Penelope Trunk will explain why you need to be part of the revolution instead of trying to stop it.

It’s time to focus on ideas and optimism and learning. It will help your career and your personal life, and on the way, you'll stop having trouble with younger workers.

What You Will Learn

  • Why Gen Y is not motivated by money and what to use as bargaining chips 
  • Why you shouldn’t worry about Gen Yers communication skills
  • How Gen Y is inherently conservative
  • How Gen Y will maneuver through office politics
  • What makes Gen Yers great team players
  • Ways that Gen Y is far more productive than everyone else at the office
  • Things that cause Gen Y to leave a job 
  • And much more!

Ask yourself: Has it ever been bad to have a generation that is optimistic and self-confident and expects the world to treat them well? These seem like traits we should all have at work and in life.

This emerging workforce is the future of your organization, now is the time to get to understand them a little better.
