As America's workers elect to retire at a later age, the mix of workers enjoyed by employers is as diverse as ever. According to the AARP, a World War II veteran may find himself reporting to a twenty-something only a few years out of college, or a Gen-Xer may find herself planning a retirement policy for employees twice her age. Mining the benefits that this presents offers organizations and project managers a unique opportunity to be truly multidimensional. 

Learning Objectives: 

At the end of this presentation, the audience will be able to: 

  • Identify four generations in the workplace, and define them by experiences and events.  
  • Compare and contrast the values and the potential outcomes of generational interaction.  
  • Consider and identify potential problems for an organization when people from different generations fail to communicate effectively.  
  • Compare and identify differing feedback styles and their impact.  
  • Offer strategies for effective cross communication
