Decades of Differences: Generations in the Workplace

There is a demographic storm brewing. What’s in the storm?

  • Three distinct generations of employees with competing priorities, work styles and needs.
  • A huge Baby Boomer Generation on the verge of a mass exodus from the workplace.
  • A significant lack of available, qualified talent for leadership positions.
  • The massive and unique population of Generation Y marching into the workplace.

Why is this an issue in today’s workplace? 

A Job Description for Leader’s Today

Are you interested in managing a team of highly-talented, highly-educated, aggressive, tech-savvy, values driven people? Are you ready to be challenged publicly about the way you do your work? Are you eager to manage a team of entrepreneurial, results-oriented team members who want a flexible job schedule with ample paid vacation? Are you willing to develop and train your people so they can take your job?

Based on the book Decades of Differences:  Making it Work by Bonnie Hagemann and Ken Gronbach, this webinar is based on expert leadership and demographic analysis of the issues, their impact and what you can do as a leader.

With different values and seemingly incompatible views on work style, these groups have the potential to create conflict in the workplace. Increased understanding and management of these groups are essential. This storm is rapidly closing in to combine with other significant forces:  the ongoing technology revolution, the ever-expanding globally competitive marketplace and the sluggish economy.

The good news is that the shifting demographics does not have to be a “threat” to your organization’s long-term health and success. This shift can be understood, prepared for, and managed.
