    Do YOU have difficulty working with members of other generations, understanding them, communicating with them? Earlier generations entered a workforce with structured rewards and incentives, where their senior leaders gave newcomers their version of reality with no consideration of alternative viewpoints, and managers who often supported long and ineffective one-on-one feedback sessions. Thankfully, this one size, structured approach is no longer the norm.

    Today, top organizations tailor their rewards for their individual workers, and the best mentors specialize in brief and pointed conversations focusing on one area. Millennials show seniors how technology, social media, and other cutting-edge techniques improve themselves and their organizations. 

    Join us as we’ll share how all generations can work, grow, and succeed together. Specifically, we’ll explore how to:

    • determine methods of restructuring your reward system, benefiting all generations
    • give microfeedback to Millennials
    • provide reverse feedback to Boomers
    • talk about group mentoring with the Xers

    Through this interaction session, you’ll have the opportunity to discover how others describe their successes and explore new methods to improve your organizations’ effectiveness. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of the:

    • differences between the generations and traditional differences between age groups
    • impact of these differences on changing reward perspectives
    • benefits of mentoring and coaching in the modern organization
    • microfeedback, it’s benefits and how to deliver it
    • importance of your personal working relationship with members of other generations
