Building Bridges Across the Generations

Course Outline

Building Bridges Across the Generations

General information on course

One of the biggest influences in today’s workplace is the diversity and age of workers. Potentially, four different generations could end up working in the same environment. Each generation has its own set of values, communication styles, and is motivated differently. Within each generation, individuals may want something different from their work and personal lives. These differences can be a source of conflict. People oftentimes come across as being difficult because they handle conflict differently. Diversity in the workplace should be recognized as an organizational strength not a weakness. Managed conflict can lead to healthy outcomes and strengthen relationships both at work and at home. This workshop is designed to spark a lasting change that benefits not only the individual, but also the group as a whole. It provides all participants with a simple, direct way to understand the different fears that drive much of the conflict and resistance they experience. Participants will learn proven techniques and strategies that reinforce teamwork, improve communication, and reduce stress regardless of who they are working with.
