Generational Challenges in the Workplace
For the first time in American history, four different generations are working side-by-side in the workplace.
People with different ways of working, talking, and thinking who don’t understand each other and don’t know how to communicate with each other are creating unique challenges for managers who are trying to mold these ages, values, and views into a productive group.
People of different generations and perspectives have the potential to bring different thoughts and ideas to problem solving and future opportunity.
You will learn how to:
- Understand the generations in the workplace today–the events that shaped their lives, their work styles, and factors to keep in mind when working with each generation.
- Understand the needs and values of all working generations and how to maximize productivity among them.
- Understand differences, resolve conflicts, and manage effectively in today’s age-diverse workplace.
- Build a harmonious workforce where people work together for the organization, not against each other.
