How to Lead a Multigenerational Workforce While Managing to Keep Your Sanity

Learning how to bridge the gaps created by the rapidly growing age diversity is important in the face of tight budgets, staff turnover and rising expectations. This workshop will help you to rethink your recruiting and hiring practices, understand the most effective leadership styles for each generational group and develop proven strategies to reward, train and retain your talented employees. Using case studies based on actual situations facing Diocesan IT Directors and Administrators and personalized leadership assessments, this highly interactive and motivational workshop will deliver tools and techniques that can assist you to optimize your team’s performance.
"No, you can't have dual 27 inch monitors" - Managing Millennials and the Multigenerational Workforce
Millennials are often seen as entitled, self-absorbed, hard to manage and demanding. They are also flexible, tech-savvy, motivated and want to make the world a better place. Learning how to manage this new group of employees as part of a dynamic multigenerational workforce is important for team success. This entertaining presentation will offer insights and strategies that Diocesan IT Directors and Administrators can use to deal with the challenges posed by the rapidly changing workforce.
How SSA Can Help You Bridge the Generational Gap
SSA has a long and rich history of helping clients overcome diversity obstacles in the workplace, including the struggles people of different generations experience when operating in the same work environment. SSA has extensive experience providing training to companies in a variety of industries to enable them to recognize and embrace the differences between themselves and others. Among the four working generations in the workforce today (Boomers, Gen X, Gen Y, and Millennials), there exists differences but also many similarities that are often overlooked. SSA has assisted executives and managers/supervisors to discard fiction and myths about these generations and enable them to create and maintain a solid and productive multi-generational workplace.
