It may seem now that we are more divided than ever. But looking around, there are remarkable scenes of people working with levels of collaboration and focus, each bringing the insights and expertise unique to their individual experiences, including their generation. Research shows that the most important predictor of a high performance is the communication patterns of that team. Managers who know how to leverage this array of capabilities can achieve remarkable results. This requires a realistic understanding of how generations differ, and then applying that knowledge to project management behaviors.
Join us for an interactive session focused on how people of different ages communicate and are motivated, both in person and digitally. Bring your own stories to the table, applying the most current research on behaviors that will lead to a happier ending.
