Now more than ever, organizations are struggling with generational differences in the workplace. Transferring years of experience and knowledge from incumbent leaders to senior managers to the generation climbing the ranks is no easy challenge under normal circumstances. And when issues surrounding communication preferences, assumptions about authority, power, control, and lifestyle are present, that process is made all the more difficult. So what’s the best way for organizations to bridge the gap, so to speak?
Join subject matter experts Ron Carucci and Josh Epperson for an informative webinar that discusses the leadership issues persisting in today’s multi-generational organizations. Not only will you gain valuable insight and a new way of thinking, you’ll also learn a number of action-oriented techniques you can use to enable your leaders to work together harmoniously and create a positive impact on performance.
