Leading across generations - Overcoming main challenges


For the first time in history, four generations are working together. While employees from the older generations are delaying retirement, younger cohorts of Generation Y also called Millennials are also entering the workforce. Generations with different work attitudes, values and life experiences are large in numbers.

Increasing age diversity is associated with higher levels of age discrimination climate in companies, which lowered company performance as a result of lower affective commitment.

Yes you should focus on Millenials but not only. Organizations need to work on age biases and address ageism. Leading across generations is a 1-day program that challenges the popular stereotypes about generations and the ready to use formulas that work for all in the same generation.

Based on the last research on neuroscience, cultural models and personality traits assessments, this workshop redefines how young or senior leaders need to get awareness and act in the challenge of intergenerational workplace.
