Generational Differences Training

Managing Across Generations

In today’s workplace, it is common to find four or even five generations represented in the employee population. This multigenerational environment presents both challenges and opportunities for managers as they work to keep all employees engaged, motivated, and performing at a high level. Managing Across Generations explores the behaviors, work habits, values, cultural expectations and other styles and preferences employees of all ages bring to their professions, affecting how they communicate, interact, and learn both as individuals and in teams. This program also shows managers how to move beyond stereotypes and labels to cultivate a dynamic of inclusiveness and respect for the strengths that workers from all generations bring to the organization.Generational Differences Training
