Session Details

Four distinct generations are working together shoulder to shoulder, each with a unique set of attitudes, values, and work styles. Roles are all over the map and rules are being rewritten, and everyone is feeling the pain of generations as they struggle to effectively communicate and maintain high standards of quality and service. When Generations Connect demonstrates why it's important to understand what shaped the generations and why they behave the way they do. It will present you with the tools needed to convert generational diversity from an obstacle into an opportunity.
