Leveraging Generational Differences in the Workplace

During this half day seminar, participants will discover the benefits of having different generations represented at all levels of the organization.

Change in the workplace is happening at warp speed and to keep your companies at the forefront of your industry you must move away from unproductive and negative views of different generational priorities.

By the end of the workshop, the group will know how to use key leadership skills founded in communication and emotional intelligence to leverage generational difference and gain competitive advantage. We will discuss how to optimize productivity and morale in the office and in the field for better results and sustainability.
