For the first time in history, four generations are working alongside each other in the workplace—often creating frustration, tension, misunderstanding, isolation & communication breakdowns. The good news is, strategies exist for understanding the shifting workplace environment so organizational leaders and their employees can create workplace cultures which inspire creativity, relevant solution-finding and buy-in, regardless of the generation they identify with.
Attendees will be introduced to a coaching model for creating a culture of insight within the workplace beginning with the cultural and systemic issues shifting the 21st Century workplace. This workshop is for anyone interested in going beyond, “how are millennials and Gen Z different?” to understanding the drivers of generational differences, conflict and how to get to solutions. This unique systemic perspective will set the stage for the shifting perspectives necessary for developing insight and relevant solutions.
