For the first time in history, there are four generations in the workplace and five in the marketplace. This new phenomenon complicates our work and our relationships because while people of all generations have the same basic needs, they meet those needs in different ways. Appreciating other generations keeps generations talking instead of fighting. Until the people on your team understand why other generations work differently, they will remain irritated, and the team will pull apart rather than stick together. The most important thing is to focus on why each generation prefers a different approach rather than on what they don’t like about the other generations’ behavior.
In this workshop we will:
- Explore the diverse life experiences of each generation which contribute to who we are today.
- Identify sticking points between the generations as it relates to communication, decision making, policies and work ethic.
