For the first time in history, five generations are working side by side, each with different leadership, communication and career development styles. This surge in workplace diversity brings varying perspectives, ideas, and experiences – all of which can spark creativity, innovation and growth for your organization. However, differences in working styles between the generations can result in cracks in engagement and productivity if not addressed. This workshop will help you to:

  • Understand the various generations in the workplace including their definition events and experiences, values and characteristics at work.
  • Learn techniques to help your organization work effectively as a team across generations.
