Do you struggle with finding the balance among generations? Have you found what motivates some, may not motivate others, and are challenged with bringing your "whole' workforce to maximum potential?

Join Dana Hall-Ragland of The Idea Group HR, as she explains that there is more that unites us than divides us, but, with four generations in our workplaces, we face challenges in balancing the needs of them all. In this presentation, we will discuss the collective personalities of each generation inhabiting our workforce and learn to understand how our shared life experiences shape our perception of the world around us. We will discover new ways to approach the differences and  commonalities among the generations and leave with actionable solutions to make positive changes in our workplaces.

In this program, we will explore:

  • Understand the defining experiences that create the collective personalities of each generation.
  • Understand how perception is a trick our minds play on us and what we can do about it.
  • Gain new insight and solutions to approaching genera+onal issues in our workplaces.
