Talking About Our Generation: Learning to Communicate More Effectively Across Generations

Past Event

Learning to Communicate More Effectively Across Generations

Have you ever had these thoughts? “Why won’t they just pick up the phone?” or “You should stay until the job is finished,” or “Why do they come to my cubicle to answer my emails?”

You love the variety of people you work with and the variety of tasks you perform each day, but sometimes they can all drive you crazy! Some of this craziness comes from the way that the four different generations clash in today’s workplace. Each generation wants to perform their best work and yet their beliefs and values can differ greatly in how they approach their work. This workshop promotes a light-hearted yet thought-provoking look at the benefits of a mixed-generation workforce and examines how age affects all of us in the workplace.

During this highly-interactive workshop you will:

  • Assess your current knowledge of the four generations in today’s workforce: Traditionalists, Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.
  • Learn the facts and events that shaped each of these generations’ way of viewing the world of work.
  • Discover six to ten tips to improve your communication with each generation.
  • Understand how to attract and retain Millennials
