Participants will be presented with the latest data related to bridging generational differences. The views, behaviors, and attitudes of several generations are explored in a serious and humorous fashion. Participants will find new ways to view and work with the “other” generation.

    Workshop participants will learn about:

    • The “normal” and unique generational differences that exist in the workplace
    • The latest research on why these differences exist
    • Practical Strategies for Supervising and Training Younger Employees
    • Organizational changes and Strategies for addressing generational issues
