Session 3: Give and Take: Managing Generations in Work and Life

Assistant Director · The Leadership Institute

ABSTRACT:

By the end of this decade, 64 million skilled workers will be able to retire. Is the new workforce different from the retiring workforce? A focus on generational differences presumes that each generation is fundamentally different, thus, leading to frustration and stress, especially in the workplace. While the methods may look different, the underlying values are similar. Exploring preferred communication styles and work/life practices among the generations can bridge generational gaps and help to strengthen the organization as a whole.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Identify preferred workstyles characteristic of four generations within the workplace
  2. Discuss ideal communication techniques
  3. Practice techniques to enhance work/life balance
