Having people from many generations in the workplace is a great opportunity for sharing life experiences, values and ideas. As individuals from different generations, including Generation 9/11 (born 1991 onward), Millennials (born 1977-1990), Generation X (born 1965 to 1976), Baby Boomers (born 1946 to 1964), and Traditionals (born 1930 to 1945) interact, important insights into each can be made. This can be done by understanding how the members of each generation were impacted and shaped by the times in which they lived. With this knowledge, you can learn how to better deal with change, increase productivity, and develop a more respectful workplace.
This course provides you with an in-depth look at each of these five generations, as well as how to best communicate with each. Learn about what characterizes each generation, and some tips to help bridge the gap when it comes to working with people from other generations.
Members of different generations have different values depending on the time in which they grew up, and the world that shaped them. Members of one generation may have preconceived notions or stereotypes about the members of another, but it is important to realize why members of a certain generation, though obviously it is not true for all members, act and think in the way they do. With this knowledge, a more open and respectful workplace can be created. Utilize the information presented here and create such a workplace.
