Communicating Across the Generations at Work
Connecting and Communicating in a Multi-Generational Workplace
Managing the Generations at Work: The Clash of Veterans, Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials, and Gen Zers
This presentation on Intergenerational Communication in the Workplace has become a very popular one. With four or five different generations converging upon the workplace, everyone needs to be equipped with the practical strategies to deal with all the differences.
Each generation seems to have its own idea concerning authority, career goals, rewards, and balance. Many of my clients accept the differences in the generations’ expectations and tailor their work processes for the benefit of all. Learn the proven approaches that help to attract, develop, and retain your talent, no matter their age.
If you’re a young manager; how do you establish credibility with a person old enough to be your parent? If you have just taken your first management position; how do you suddenly start effectively supervising people your same age? If Baby Boomers have most of the good jobs in your organization; how do you keep your young people around? If you’re significantly younger than everyone else on the team; how do you get older colleagues to listen?
Kit sorts through the stereotypes, and identifies the strengths and weaknesses of Traditionals, Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials, and Gen Zers. Understanding the intergenerational communication issues will support your staff with strategies to communicate more effectively with each other. And of course, learning intergenerational communication skills can reduce frustrations and stress in the workplace and at home.
Participants will learn:
- to sort through the stereotypes of each generation
- to identify each generation’s strengths and weaknesses
- how to attract, motivate, train, and retain each generation
