Do you have three or more generations in your office? Does your management team struggle creating fully functional teams of employees from different generations? Is there friction between managers and employees on when and where work should be performed? Do you want to better understand your Generation Y employees and know how to motivate them to be better employees? If so, this workshop is for you.
The workplace is now multi-generational with different communication styles, expectations, values and need for feedback. There are challenges in getting all of these generational groups to get along.
We will cover five generations:
- Greatest – 1900-1924
- Silent – 1925-1945
- Baby Boomer – 1946-1964
- Gen X – 1965 – 1982
- Gen Y – 1983 – 2000
The interesting thing is we are familiar with all of these generations because we have grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, cousins, children or grandchildren from all of these generations.
We will focus on generational differences in communications and learning styles, work experience and expectations, and group dynamics.
Additionally, we will focus on how Gen Y is structurally and educationally different from every other generation. We will discuss how to adapt and parent your employees. Yes, I said parent! Well maybe not parent but definitely coach.
