Each of the four generations in today’s workplace brings very different—and often contradictory—values, beliefs and expectations to work where the success of the organization depends upon their strengths and collaboration. Never before have four so different generations worked side-by-side: loyal Traditionalists; idealistic Baby Boomers; pragmatic Gen X-ers; and confident Millennials. And a 5th generation—Gen Z / Gen Tech—adds yet another set of expectations to the workplace.
The “magic” of inter-generational (and ‘gender’ too!) collaboration includes viewing the world through others’ lenses, finding the similarities and discovering the strengths that each generation brings to shape a successful enterprise. This happens through trust, agility and respect.
This program begins the discussion for organizations that want to improve collaboration by examining how each generation defines “work” and “how work gets done” so that future conversations can leverage those differences to improve business outcomes.
