Managing Multi-Generational Teams

“Every generation imagines itself to be more intelligent than the one that went before it, and wiser than the one that comes after it.” –George Orwell

Today’s workforce is the most diverse in history. With the sheer number of Millennials in the workforce influencing how work is done along with the number of seniors who are continuing to work well past traditional retirement age, managers and leaders today are faced with increasingly complex generational needs and differences. From communications style preferences to expectations of appropriate behavior, each generation has its own perspective and works accordingly.

This workshop explores the generational differences, similarities and expectations important for every manager today. We explore how each generation was shaped and provide insight into their expectations. This powerful workshop addresses many of the challenges managers of multi-generational teams currently face and provide a concrete action plan to leverage each generations’ strengths.
