TOPIC: "Facilitating the Multi-Generational Workplace"
Because this is the first time in American history where there have been as many as four and five generations in the workplace, a new kind of tension has emerged. It's not uncommon for groups to stereotype and judge one another, which naturally has a negative effect. Trying to change someone else's perspective, approach, and/or style may feel like a losing battle. It is more effective to capitalize on each other's strengths and assets. Masterful communicators can connect with people from various generations by adapting, collaborating, and negotiating common ground.
Objectives: Participants will leave with
- An appreciation for the new multi-generational workforce
- An understanding of the perceptions that each has of “the others”
- Suggestions for facilitating tension, conflict, and misunderstanding
- A model for creating an appreciative culture that utilizes each other’s strengths and evaluates (together) what works and what needs attention.
