Leadership CoP: The Mindful Influence


As older workers are delaying retiring and younger workers are entering the workforce, the work environment has become a patchwork of differing perspectives and valuable experiences. While the value of such diversity can be critical to an organization's success, it brings with it challenges.

For project managers, age or generational diversity may amplify communication challenges, increase barriers on the path to consensus, and require nuanced approaches to effectively engaging employees. For example, you may have found yourself thinking "how can I improve my impact on team members and achieve the desired outcomes in the face of differing values, experience sets, and communication styles?" While it may seem like an insurmountable goal to cultivate an efficient and effective environment for employees across generations, practicing the right form of mindfulness can provide unprecedented clarity into the obstacles and solutions.

In this experiential session you will:

  • Learn how history has shaped the thinking of each type of generation
  • Understand the differences between each type of generation to find common ground among the generations.
  • Learn how to leverage mindfulness to manage conflicts and put generation gap to work to everyone’s advantage and building a strong team.
  • Walk away with a ‘Personalized Action Plan’ to implement mindful influence in your personal and professional life

Please note: Although this session builds on the information in the May 10th workshop, it is not necessary to have attended that event to learn about mindful influence and walk away with practical understanding and actions.
