“Communicating with the Generations”: Breaking Down Generations in the Workforce
For the first time ever, five generations are now working together in businesses and organizations across the country. In fact, adults age 18 to 34 now make up 1 in 3 American workers, according to Pew Research Center. This number is expected to grow as more millennials enter the workforce after high school and/or college.
To improve interpersonal communications, it is essential to understand the vast generational differences. In this keynote address, Kim will outline how limiting beliefs, core values, outside influences, predominant characteristics and work styles affect each generation. She will share strategies and tactics to create more harmonious workplace and social environments.
