Collaborating Across Generations
Tuesday, January 24, 2023
There are four generations in the workplace, all with different assets that can help your team thrive, if you know how to unlock that potential. Millennial managers are working side-by-side gritty Gen Z interns and new hires, and independent Generation Xers are clashing with team-oriented Boomers. With the new world of hybrid work, the Great Resignation, and burnout on the rise, understanding how to collaborate with all generations is integral to engaging and retaining great employees.
Through a look at historical trends, participants will discover the key differences between the generations and the defining experiences that rocked their worlds and shaped them at work. Attendees will consider common workplace tendencies and learn tips to create an open dialogue and promote collaboration. Participants immediately put these techniques and best practices into action by working through real-world situations.
Attend and learn:
- Formative moments and societal trends that shaped each generation
- To create an environment of collaboration among differing generations
- To adjust your approach when giving feedback or assigning tasks to colleagues
- Implement specific techniques for partnering with individuals from diverse generations
- Remember that no generation is better or worse – just really different!
