Working Across Generations
There’s an old saying, “demography is destiny.” Today in management, it might be said that “demography is pretty darn difficult.”
The demographic composition of organizations is changing significantly. In 2016, Millennials became the largest generational cohort in the U.S. workforce, surpassing Baby Boomers (who are declining in numbers) and Gen Xers. What we see are three distinct generations needing to work together effectively to move organizations into the future. But these are very different generations.
Anytime there are multi-generational cohorts in organizations, there is a challenge: how can organizations drive high performance from groups that are so diverse in terms of values and orientations? How can people lead an organization when there are clear differences in the goals and expectations of different groups of employees? How can executives form effective teams and provide effective coaching across such distinct cohorts?
In this program, Dr. Aaron Buchko, Professor of Management at Bradley University, will explore these issues and other challenges of working in and with multigenerational organizations. Topics to be discussed will include:
- The Multigenerational Organization
- Who ARE these people? (And what’s wrong with them?)
- What do these groups want and expect?
- How can I effectively work with diverse generations of people?
At the end of the session, participants will have a greater understanding of the generational differences and issues impacting organizations today and a better sense of how to effectively work in today’s multigenerational organization.
