Now that several generations — with different communication styles — often are working together in the workplace, miscommunication can — and too often does — take place. Even though people in the various generations often don’t agree, there is one thing they all agree on: Respect for each other in the workplace simply doesn’t exist. Those in the older generations (the Silent Generation and the Baby Boomers) think the younger workers of today are lazy and disrespectful. On the other hand, the younger generations (Generation X and the Millennials) think the older workers are stuck in their ways and too closed-minded. Despite these differences, people from the varying generations must work together productively for the company to succeed. If they let their generational outlooks get in the way, conflict will result. The Keynote will address: • Know each other’s preferences • Spend time with each other • Be open to talking things out This energetic and engaging talk looks at the problems and the solutions to effective communication across generation in order to create productive peak performance teams.
