There are now 5 generations in the workforce with very different views and approaches to just about everything. Have you ever had one of those moments when you realize that it’s a generational difference that is derailing your project and causing you frustration?
Determining generational attitudes and behaviors is a tight rope walk and with multigenerational teams actively engaged in the workplace, this key challenge of cohesion among team members is more important now than ever. Every generation brings unique strengths to the workplace, but knowing how to embrace both the differences and strengths while focused on project goals, is an art that we all need to master in the 21st century.
In the end, the key to delivering any project successfully comes down to the “human” factor. Taping into the talents and skills of the team requires a culture of trust, self-awareness, coaching skills and holding everyone equally accountable to the success of the project and that all falls on your shoulders.
This session you will learn how different generations of workers relate to each other, are motivated to perform and how they form their priorities. In the current workplace it’s all about engagement and how you motivate team members throughout the process. Finally, this session will cover the top 5 secrets for successfully manage team peers.
