  • Generations: Communicating Across Generations
    Never before in our nation’s history have so many people from so many different generations been in the workforce at the same time. As a result, individuals, employers, and organizations are presented with many challenges and many opportunities. Each generation brings diverse perspectives, values, needs, and expectations to the workplace. Those who can communicate effectively across generations have much to gain. Participants in this workshop will learn to recognize the descriptors that define a generation and identify the forces that shaped their attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and worldview.

    • Workshop Goals
      • Increase knowledge and understanding of the generations;
      • Enhance comprehension of how generational differences affect you;
      • Promote skills for effective intergenerational communication;
      • Encourage appreciation of the value of each generation; and
      • Expand capacity to manage diverse generational working styles.
