Working and Managing Across Generations: From Traditionalist to Generation Y and Beyond…

Outcomes-

This session engages participants to:

Explore generational differences and their assumptions to the access of information in order to effectively manage tasks, teams and people.
Determine how different generations view teamwork.
Develop and hone leadership techniques to effectively manage Traditionalists, Baby-Boomers, Gen. X, and Millennials.
Develop skills for communicating across generational divides.
Explore technology and its application to work and social interactions.
Realize that as generations enter and leave the workforce, competency and respect for people are what drives successful organizations, teams and people.

Managing and working with generational diversity is a significant dimension of what is needed for success in the workplace today. The challenge is getting people to understand one another by exploring differences in expectations, assumptions and language use; then using this knowledge to increase effectiveness of people, teams

and organizations.



Bridging the age gap to build respectful working relationships can mean the difference between a work environment that clicks and one that clashes.

  • Skepticism – The view that knowledge in some area is not possible. Skeptics often don’t actually doubt the truth of the belief which they are skeptical about: their central claim is that we don’t have justification for that belief, and thus can’t be said to know it.- The Philosopher Dictionary. Martin (2003)

    • 4. If you dislike theory, and seek only “Practical action”; That is unfortunate. Anything you do is founded upon a theory of some sort, and eschewing theory merely means that your decisions are being misdirected by some bad theory which you do not know about.- Elliot Jaques; Requisite Organization

    • 7. The end of the Cold War also led to a world that was not only connected, but hyperconnected. Friedman notes that the global connectivity he focused on in his book The World Is Flat has already grown by leaps and bounds since 2004, when he sat down to write it.
      "Facebook didn't exist; Twitter was a sound; the cloud was in the sky; 4G was a parking place; LinkedIn was a prison; applications were what you sent to college; and Skype for most people was typo," he says. "All of that changed in just the last six years.“

    • 21. “I have been researching generational differences and continually dig up unicorns and bullshit. Here it is at the core; People want to do good work, no matter how old and when they are born. Determining intelligence (ability to handle complexity of work) + values + skilled knowledge + wisdom + temperament will tell you what the person is currently able to handle as far as work goes.
      Good managers are good whether they are Gen Y, Traditionalists, etc... Provide broad goals that allow for autonomy of people to do their work, supply the necessary resources to accomplish the work, and measure progress along the way.
