There’s no denying the underlying frustration in many
workplaces over the differences among generations. For the first time in
history, five different generations are working side by side – on the worksite,
in open-concept offices, and even around the executive table. Whether these
differences stem from work ethic or work styles and whether they are perceived
or real, there are easy solutions to finding
some common ground. Join Emergent Method for actionable takeaways on how to
have the right conversations and create an environment where team members look
as an opportunity to learn. You don’t even have to walk
uphill in the snow both ways to get there.
This is an issue we
hear complaints about from people in all generations – we heard you and
booked a session on this just for you.
There are some really
solid, easy-to-implement takeaways that anyone can bring back to their
teams next week.
We know the Emergent Method folks
and we are sure this will be fun and informative.
