THE REMIX: HOW TO LEAD AND SUCCEED IN THE MULTIGENERATIONAL WORKPLACE

What if generational change is not a problem to overcome, but an opportunity to optimize?

For the first time in history, five generations now share the workplace, and leaders must balance a generation gap of multiple decades between the oldest and youngest employees. Generational issues are often exacerbated during challenging times, such as the global Covid-19 pandemic and the remote and hybrid work situations it has created.

New York Times bestselling author and multigenerational workplace expert Lindsey Pollak — often called a translator among generations— will share her insights into how organizations and individuals are changing the way they do business to better manage and leverage the unique skills and talents of each generation.

In this dynamic, engaging, action-oriented program, you will gain specific, actionable strategies to manage cross-generational challenges and turn multi-generational understanding into a competitive advantage.

Attendees will:

  • Understand the five distinct generations and how to work best with multigenerational teams
  • Discover the most common points of generational conflict related to communication, feedback, benefits, career pathing and more — and specific tactics to overcome them
  • Obtain actionable strategies to strengthen generational understanding and cross-generational relationships
