Title of the speech:

Leveraging Generational Rapport For Exponential Knowledge Transfer

The challenge of knowledge transfer is not a lack of knowledge but a lack of relationship. Perhaps the greatest transfer of knowledge in the history of the world will take place over the next 15 years as a older generations give way to younger generations. Young professionals represent the first generation that has not needed an authority figure to access information. Consequently, technology has redefined how young professionals relate to authority and how older generations perceive them. You will learn how to overcome generational tension that inhibits career development and knowledge transfer.

Title of workshop:

Thriving In A Multigenerational Workforce

There is a monumental changing of the guard that is currently taking place in organizations. One of the largest birth cohorts or generations in history (Baby Boomer) is beginning to retire while their predecessor (Builder) is almost completely out of the workforce. Gen X is hitting stride and on the cusp of inheriting the proverbial organizational mantle. The three aforementioned age cohorts have learned to play in the organizational sandbox together. However, a new age cohort (Millennials—the largest age cohort in today’s workforce) is kicking up sand. They are plug-n-play when it comes to wanting to engage at work but organizations often turn them off as a result of not understanding their behaviors and values.

You will learn skills that will help you work with every generation but they will be exponentially important when working with Millennials. The session is not based on a discussion about Millennials—it is the result of a decade long conversation with Millennials and the people who are successful at working with them as employees and clients.
