Across all industries, for the first time ever in modern history, we are navigating a workplace with up to five generations. As a result, today’s leaders are faced with the complexity of managing very different perspectives, work styles, and preferences within multigenerational teams. While generational diversity can cause divide amongst teams, a harmonious environment and better business outcomes can be achieved if leaders navigate the multigenerational team dynamic effectively. Join us as we explore generational diversity and the various techniques that you can employ to master the art of leading multigenerational teams. In this session you will:
- Develop a comprehensive understanding of the unique characteristics, values, and preferences associated with different generations in the workplace.
- Understand the challenges of managing generational diversity.
- Identify strategies for creating an inclusive work environment that values and leverages the strength of every generation.
Attendees will receive 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH) upon completion.
