Bridging the Generation Gap
BRIDGING THE GENERATION GAP:
Good business is based on understanding!
Business is always demanding – bigger, better, faster, smarter – and we must all rise to the occasion. There is a critical new problem in the workplace, and it has nothing to do with downsizing, or global competition. Instead, it is the problem of the generations — the Veterans, the Baby Boomers, Gen X and Millennials — working together and colliding as they work together to make the industry successful!
This is the first time in American history that we have four (some say five) different generations working side-by-side in the workplace. Employees from all generations must take on the responsibility to overcome generational differences and bridging the generation gap.
Each generation has distinct attitudes, behaviors, expectations, habits and motivational buttons. Being aware of these differences can help individuals tailor their message for maximum effect, regardless of the task, or the relationship — family, friends, workplace peers.
With the interpersonal and communication skills developed in this generation gap training, participants learn how to collaborate effectively across generational differences in the workplace. They become more productive by recognizing and utilizing the strengths of the different generations within the team and the organization.
