Managing Across Generations
Each generation brings a unique set of talents to the table. When a leader encourages team members to bridge the generations, embrace their differences, and connect with one another, the result is a cohesive unit that prospers and accomplishes any task they are given. Managing across generations is an essential key in creating a team that puts ideas into actions.
We call it the “generation gap.” Really, though, there’s nothing separating us but ourselves and how we view the world from various periods of history. We all have something to learn from those who came before us and those who came after us. As Charles Spurgeon said, “Every generation needs regeneration.” Each of us can build on the learnings of those who have lived longer and experienced more, and those who are new on the scene.
In this course, you learn how to bridge the generation gap and tap into the unique pool of talents that people of all ages bring to the workplace. Learning to work in a diverse environment shows you that people of all ages throughout the spectrum have something to contribute to the challenges we face today. Generational differences can become a catalyst for enhancing productivity and creating a dynamic, vibrant workforce that highlights timeless solutions for respecting and valuing everyone's perspective.
