Leadership and Generations: What Are They Thinking?

Increasingly, generational differences are causing conflict and frustration in many organizations. Some of the differences, from how an employee views a dress code or work hours to how work gets done and what a full day of work means, are creating dissension. Each generation seems to be communicating: “What are they thinking?” In this program, you will learn about generational differences and develop an appreciation for how valuable those differences can be.

This includes giving and receiving feedback, managing performance expectations, and increasing organizational effectiveness, productivity and harmony.
