Management: Leading Across Multi-Generations One-Day Retreat (WPG138-62)
Wed. 10/19/2016; 9am-4pm, 1 session
Location: Hyannis Center, 540 Main Street, Hyannis
Cost: $29 for full day retreat, special thank you to Eastern Bank for sponsoring this Management Program!
For the first time in history there are four generations active in the workforce. Shaped by the world in which they grew up, these four generations bring different perspectives, work ethic and abilities to learn to the workplace. All of this can create conflict, breakdowns in communication and decreased productivity. Leaders and managers must be able to understand the differences not only to communicate to their teams in a relevant fashion, but also to motivate and manage them.
Inspirational speakers only illustrate the differences. This professionally developed all day program, however, is designed to educate about the generations, provide tools with practical application and resources for further study. In session discussion and activities are designed to identify personal prejudices and develop creative team solutions.
In this course participants can expect to learn:
- The characteristics, learning preferences and communication styles of the different generations.
- Learn why traditional management practices are not always effective across generations.
- Not only to identify stereotypes, but how to dispel them.
- Practical solutions to typical challenges faced in organizations today.
- How to develop an action plan to address common multi-generational challenges.
This one-day retreat is made possible by a gracious sponsorship from Eastern Bank. The presenter will be Jen Vondenbrink. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided to participants.
