For the first time in history, we now have five distinct generations in the workplace: Traditionalists - born before 1945; Baby Boomers – born between 1946 and 1965; Gen X - born between 1965 and 1977; Millennials – born between 1978 and 1995; and Gen 2020 (or Gen Z), the newest generation of employees entering the workforce – born after 1995.
Combine all these generations together and you’re bound to see sparks – in fact, 60% of employers report conflict and tensions in their workplace due to a multi-generational workforce. This, in turn, can affect worker retention, engagement and productivity; not to mention the stress it can place on the managers and leaders who are tasked with creating and maintaining high-performance teams.
This 3-day program will help you understand what makes these different generations tick, as well as highlight the common ground and points of parity despite generational categories. From these insights, we will discuss management frameworks, tools and opportunities to aid you in effectively leading multi-generational teams – whether small, medium, or large in size.
Who should attend:
- Managers, directors and VPs;
- New managers looking for advice and tools on managing different generations (e.g., millennials managing traditionalists);
- Those seeking to take on a more senior-level or leadership role within their organizations.
