Leadership in a Multigenerational Workplace: How to Leverage Your Employees for Maximum Impact

For the first time in history, four generations are sharing the workplace — and sometimes it feels like they are living in four different worlds. Being able to successfully lead all the generations is challenging, but it is critical to the success of your team and your organization. This interactive discussion will bring together a diverse mix of leaders and professionals to share best practices and lessons learned around leading a multigenerational workplace.

Research and real-life experiences will offer attendees practical advice to:

– Understand the generations and the unique needs/characteristics of the traditionalists, baby boomers, Gen X and Millenials;
– Lead more effectively and increase productivity;
– Improve communication and cross-generational relationships for yourself and your team;
– Provide more effective mentoring to better develop the next generation of leaders; and
– Leverage your team’s strengths to develop a succession plan
