    For the first time in American history, there are four generations in the workplace. The "old folks" are not obsolete, and the "kids" are not sloppy and lazy. Each brings an important energy and contribution to the team. This fun and interactive session allows you to understand each generation's driving influence and gives you what you need to communicate for greater effectiveness and harmony.

    Key Takeaways:

    • Core characteristics of each of the four generations
    • Influencing factors that create emotional drivers
    • Tips for communicating with and motivating each generation – especially the largest and still growing generation: Millennials.
