Can’t We All Just Get Along?!
Robin Throckmorton, MA, SPHR,President, strategic HR, inc.

Summary of Program Description:

With five generations now in the workplace, each having different values and ideals, an awareness and understanding of generational differences is crucial to minimizing conflict, increasing teamwork, and learning how to leverage each person’s strengths to contribute to the bottom line.

A roll of the eyes from a coworker affects every one of us differently. Some of us will ignore it, while others might challenge a coworker who does it. Whatever our approach towards disagreement, all too often the end result is arguing, avoidance of coworkers, morale issues, lower productivity, turnover...or worst of all - lawsuits!

All this over generational differences? Absolutely.

Wouldn't it be great if we could all just get along? We can if we understand each other better. We can if we recognize that each generation communicates differently.

Presentation Learning Objectives:

1. Get an overview of the five generations in the workplace.
2. Learn the different preferred communication styles of each generation.
3. Gain an understanding of how to approach conflict positively with each generation.
