Leading and Communicating Across Generations

September 15, 2017 : 9:00am - 12:00pm

What is a Millennial anyway? Who is Generation Z, and how are they different from Generation X? And is there still room for the Baby Boomer mentality? 

To answer these questions, you need to understand the science of generational differences, and how people can differ along generational lines. In this session, you will diagnose your own generational worldview and learn best practices to communicate and lead across generational divides.
