Generational Diplomacy: Appreciating & Utilizing Our Differences

For the first time in the world of work, we have a new situation to deal with: four generations working side by side. Each generation has its own unique work style & key motivators. How can managers get these generations to work well together? In this program, Judi shows you how to identify & lead the diverse individuals & teams in your organization. Through a series of interesting case studies, discussions, & activities, you’ll experience the difference between the way the generations think & work, and you’ll learn how to make these differences blend, not collide.

  • Distinguish between “stereotypes” & “generalizations”
