“Great content which everyone who works in Team- or supervised-environment should watch. Watching made me think about things I’d do if I was a manager to improve relationship with my employees.

Managing Multi-Generational Workplaces
PFE Multi-gen Andreatta (powerpoint deck)
Today’s workforce is a dynamic mix of the generations—Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials work side-by-side but actually have very different ways of working, communicating and viewing the world. These differences can sometimes lead to miscommunication and conflict in the workplace, and the philanthropic sector is no exception. This session will help participants understand generational styles of working, thinking and communicating and how each generation’s culture is impacted by society. Gain a better understanding of how to draw on the strengths of many generations and to successfully navigate the inherent tensions between the styles.
