About the course
There’s an invasion quietly taking place in organizations around the world with the potential to forever change the way most workplaces function. The Millennial generation (also known as Generation Y) has entered the workforce by the millions. They are not only settling into cubicles ‘next door’ to their predecessors (GenXers, Boomers and, yes, even Matures), they are managing their cohort and other generations as well. This presents a quandary for organizations that want to attract, retain and develop leaders from all generations while transitioning the culture to embrace the new regime, perhaps faster and with higher expectations than before. Sheer demographics suggest that, in the very near future, we will feel strain on our generational talent pools and, consequently, organizational productivity. This seminar will provide leaders with insights and strategies for engaging all generations and for enhancing intergenerational communication, productivity and results.
