According to Strauss and Howe, experts in the field, “Generational collisions are among the key management issues being faced by leaders of today’s organizations.” Because people are living longer and staying in the workforce longer, this is the first time in history that five generations are likely to find themselves looking at each other over the same conference table. Companies are finding that productivity, culture and viability are being negatively impacted by poorly handled generational issues. Indeed, 65% of the research respondents say that generation gaps make it hard to get things done. They cite lack of communication; the tension between “that’s the way we’ve always done it” and “let’s change it because we can change it”; differences in generational values on issues as diverse as work ethic and dress codes; workforce shifts; workforce training and development and the problem of obtaining and retaining multi-generational talent. The #1 reason people quit their job is due to a poor relationship with their boss. This new generation, the Millennials is no different.  In fact, they value the relationship with their boss more than previous generations.

This program  focuses on specific skills that managers at any level can use to improve the effectiveness of their changing work force.
  • Managers will become aware of generational differences in the work force
  • Trainers and supervisors will learn what works and what doesn't with all Generations in the workplace based on years of research, interviews, and conversations.
  • Employee satisfaction will increase
  • Creativity will be unleashed with this next generation of employees
  • Results will improve for every generation in your work force.
