Managing the Generations at Work

Do you remember when Jackie Robinson entered the major leagues?  Were you at Woodstock?  Was the expression “get real” part of your lingo?  Or do you use “texting” as your primary form of communication?

multigenerational-workforce1Individually, these are elements that define different generations but collectively, they represent the rich mix of generations in the workforce.  Are you able to identify your own generational strengths, weaknesses, and biases to maximize communication with your colleagues, employees or customers?

Generational differences in the workplace can lead to frustration, conflict and poor morale.  But businesses that are able to build an “age-inclusive” workplace — one that supports real communication and understanding across all ages and builds on the unique values and strengths of each generation — will see a positive impact on their bottom line.

This session will address how the multigenerational workplace phenomena changed the traditional landscape of work and how we can work to eliminate intergenerational conflict on the route to organization success.  In this session we will:
• Define the unique qualities of each generation including how the seminal events of the time affected them, compelling messages from their formative years and the technology of the times;
• Explore how the session participants’ own generation affects how they interact with the world; and
• Learn the varying approaches to both lead, manage and interact in a multigenerational workforce.
