With multiple generations of talent in the workforce, differences in people’s preferences and ways of working are more prominent than ever, presenting a myriad of challenges for leaders and managers. Generational diversity gives an organization a range of talents to confront these challenges, however managing varied skill sets, approaches, and fixed mindsets can exhaust and stifle unprepared leaders. In order to understand and appreciate the wide variety of differences among workers from each generation, while engaging and deploying all their talents, they need to develop strategies for themselves and their workers to achieve maximum productivity and success.

In this highly engaging and interactive workshop, participants will be exposed to a comprehensive overview of each generation, identify personal leadership and communication styles, and explore methods to successfully tap into the individual value each generation brings to the workforce. As a result, they will leave with a personal plan to change the way they manage, with a growth mindset, viewing differences as strengths and challenges as opportunities.

Workshop Objectives:

  • To understand the values, expectations, and preferences of each generational group
  • To identify personal leadership traits and how they enhance, and hinder, one’s ability to lead a multigenerational workforce effectively
  • To explore how personal generational traits and characteristics affect work values and preferences for leadership, motivation, engagement, rewards, and recognition
  • To understand the perceptual process, and how it affects the ways in which we interact with others
  • To identify a personal leadership brand and methods to ensure it is communicated accurately and effectively
  • To identify strategies to meet the needs of individuals based on their generational affiliations
  • To demonstrate the ability to effectively communicate with and engage employees from multiple generations
  • To develop a personal leadership action plan that reflects a growth mindset of altering our thought processes about and approaches to managing individuals from multiple generational groups
