Communicating with the 5 Generations at Work

Presenter:  Mary Erlain, President, Peak Development Strategies

Our culture is diverse in age, heritage, gender, etc. This workshop will provide insight to help bridge the gaps around generational diversity. Whether you are a solo business owner, large company, or any point in between, we hope to help you being to change the way you view your business world.

There is a great generational divide that exists in our culture which began around 2011. This causes confusion, conflict, productivity challenges, marketing/advertising issues, customer retention challenges, leadership and management gaps, and loss in revenue/profitability. How can we manage these gaps and even more importantly, use them to our advantage?
