1:45pm EST Thriving in a Multi-Generational Workplace
Gary MacDonald of Clearview Consulting & Training Inc.
Around the world and across industries, more generations than ever before are working together. Increasingly, it is younger employees who are leading older team members, turning the established order on its head. This new scenario can cause problems but it also presents opportunities for sharing knowledge and experience. COVID brings added complexity, with people working remotely and utilizing various new technologies. This highly interactive workshop explores how to thrive within a multi-generational workplace.

In days gone by, it was common for just two age groups to be represented in the workplace. There were long-serving, “dyed-in-the-wool” old-timers and ambitious newcomers. Times have changed, and now you could find yourself working with as many as five generations. Broadly speaking, each one has its own set of preferences, styles, perspectives, and experiences. We will be exploring their traits and characteristics, and how they are frequently stereotyped. We will also be distinguishing the key differences between leadership & management skills in motivating an individual.
