  • What implications…developing leaders. How to get Gen Yers up to speed quickly?
  • Discuss the key points in history that influenced each groupHistorical vs personal events
  • Notes: Pass out Generational Preferences Handout
  • Assessments
  • Notes/Handout: This requires a group with at least two generations represented. Create pairs of employees from two different generations. Have individuals review the generational preferences that represent their generation and determine whether they agree or not with the general statements.
  • Notes/Handout: This is delivered to a group of no more than 15. Ask them to answer these questions individually and not share with others in the group. Then split into groups by generation and ask the group to discuss their individual preferences. You are invited to join a new team because of your expertise. You are introduced to your team members and then asked by the team leader to draft the notes of the meeting.  How would you draft the notes? What would you plan on doing with the notes after the meeting?
  • Notes: Pairs comprise representatives from two different generations. Then identify one preference that each person can mentor the other in to strengthen the individual as well as team. Identify a project. -technology is an area that Gen X’ers and Y’ers can mentor the older generations-communication is an area that Boomers can mentor younger generations
  • Notes: Look for success stories in your organization where the multi generations work effectively by leveraging their differences.
  • I’ll be around the rest of the day
