Leading an Age-Diverse Workforce
Thursday, Dec. 1, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
Gardiner Centre, Signal Hill Campus
Learn how to work with the differences in attitudes and behaviours, and develop them into organizational strengths.
This course explores the impact of having four generations of employees working together. Despite differences in terms of the age of employees across these generations, research has failed to find substantial evidence to support significant differences. However, we do know there is much conversation and conflict that can result from perceived differences between different generations of employees. As with any perceived difference within a workforce we are left to grapple with how to resolve conflicts that might result from these perceptions and attitudes towards varying generations of employees. This session will explore these perceptions and highlight strategies that can be used to challenge misperceptions and to work more effectively as a team. The course uses case scenarios and other exercises which provide an opportunity for participants to interact with peers to explore leadership strategies and enhance competencies in managing multi-generations.
