Managing across generations is difficult -- the different mindsets of each generation often get in the way of shared understanding, and can cause work conflict. In this session, you'll learn ways to coach each generation to interact with others. For example, Millennials will see how to help Baby Boomers interact better in today's organizations, and Generation X will learn strategies to guide Generation Z as they join the workforce. Come with questions, and leave with practical strategies to make communication in your organization stronger!
