Communication Across Generations
We live in a very interesting time - never before in our country’s history have so many generations worked together in one setting!
This presentation will review the generational cohorts and discuss the diverse perspectives, values, needs and expectations of each generation. In addition, we will explore the messages that motivate each generation and their desired training and development needs. Participants will learn how to interact with generations different than their own which will improve communication and build more effective teams.
The workshop will include:
▪ Review generational cohorts
▪ Training & development across generations
▪ Messages that motivate the generations
▪ Best practices in multigenerational workplace
