We can feel frustrated and misunderstood when working with different generations. 2017 marks the first time 5 generations will be in the workforce, (Gen Z) and they are not mini versions of millennials. So how do we continue to challenge and innovate while remaining inclusive of all generations in the process? How do we increase retention and decrease turnover?

When Generations Connect - Communicating Across the Generational Divide

Five distinct generations are working together shoulder to shoulder, each with a unique set of attitudes, values and work styles.

When “Generations Connect” demonstrates not only why it’s important to understand what shaped each generation, but why they behave the way they do. Find out how generation gaps hit the bottom line. Learn what to do about the approaching talent gap; grasp the keys to retaining the generations you need most and discover how to convert this form of diversity from an obstacle into an opportunity.


Millennials as Managers

Generational Intelligence


Whenever a new group enters the pack, everyone’s hackles seem to rise. It’s the discomfort of the new, the unfamiliar, and the unknown. Unfortunately, this often leads to feelings of resentment. Grumblings of, “I had to work tooth and nail to get to where I am,” become rumblings of “I didn’t have anyone to help me get where I am, you figure it out.” If, as a manager yourself, this is your initial reaction to the idea of Millennial managers, there’s no need to feel bad about it. This trial-by-fire or sink-or-swim mentality goes centuries back, and it’s a way of having newbies prove that they deserve to be among the esteemed rank.
