NENA 2013 Wednesday Keynote: Crossing the Generational Divide: Unlocking the Power of Generations™ for Your Strategic Advantage
Wednesday, June 19 | 9:00AM – 10:30AM
For the first time in world history, four distinctly different generations are working side by side. Each of these four generations (Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Gen Y) is guided by a different set of values, beliefs, and expectations. InCrossing the Generational Divide, Jason Dorsey of The Center for Generational Kinetics entertainingly reveals each generation’s preferences and priorities to highlight what they bring to the workforce — and how to build on their common ground.
Jason then shares The Center’s frontline-tested process that participants can immediately rely on to lead a culture of cross-generation communication, innovation, engagement, teamwork, and performance. Filled with surprising statistics, step-by-step strategies, and laugh-out-loud stories, attendees leave this presentation prepared to make their multi-generational workforce a competitive advantage.
