Managing Generational Differences


There is growing concern in organisations on how best to manage a workforce of three generations with differing mindsets and communication styles. The key to reducing generational conflicts and creating a harmonious and inclusive work environment is to effectively address and take advantage of the differences in values and expectations of each generation while being careful not to follow blanket stereotypes.

This workshop enables participants to understand each generation, their needs, communication preferences, and what is important to them.  Participants create their own roadmap of strategies on how to work more effectively with each generation so that the workplace is able to benefit and celebrate the talents of each generation, all while embracing and managing their differences.
