Engaging Across Generations Part I: Unique Mindsets
Tue May 2, 2017: 11:00 am-12:30 pm EDT
This is a FREE professional development webinar hosted by the Family Transitions concentration area of OneOp.
People of all ages can work well together, especially when they know and understand the unique strengths each generation has to offer. All too often the differences between generations, rather than areas of opportunity, shape how people work together. This two-part webinar series examines ways to move beyond stereotypes and potential conflict to bridge across generations which can increase creativity, problem-solving, and learning.
In part 1 of this webinar series, participants will become familiar with the various generational groups, their unique mindsets, expectations, and work styles. We will discuss what each generational group has in common and consider strategies to enhance working relationships across generations.
- Define the characteristics of multiple generations
- Explain ways generations are different from and similar to each other
- Identify generational preferences for working with others
- Explore ways to improve connections across generations
Don’t miss Engaging Across Generations Part II: Tools & Techniques on Tuesday, May 9 at 11:00 am Eastern.
