    For the first time in our history, there are four generations active in the workplace. Each has characteristics that make them unique, based on common interests, experiences and events. These characteristics cut across race, gender and economic lines, and appear to be consistent across industrialized countries worldwide.

    The ability to communicate across multiple generations is critical and occurs through applying knowledge of the generations and an understanding of what it takes to be effective. This is particularly important when interacting with our fellow associates, as each of us is from a different generation, with different styles, motivations and values.

    This session will address the four major generations in the workplace, their values and motivations, and help us to be more effective in communicating across generational lines.
