Generational Tension at Work – How, Why, and What You Can Do About It
In this Team Building Webinar Series session with Lindsay Boccardo, learn about generational differences and how, why, and what you can do about it. How you show up at work – in meetings, with your team, talking with your boss – is impacted directly by the generation in which you were raised. Your developmental psychology and your experiences with authority growing up have created the expectations you unconsciously hold, Learn what you can do to reduce tension and maximize talent in your organization.
It’s no surprise that there is more tension now than ever as four generations learn to co-exist in the workplace.
Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 – TBD.
Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 – 1995.
Generation X: Born 1965 – 1976.
Baby Boomers: Born 1946 – 1964.
Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before.
Pile on the effects of learning to work remotely, managing people from a distance, and general feelings of uncertainty in the world and you have a recipe for disaster. In order to create meaningful relationships and experiences at work, we have to focus on understanding and personal growth. Personal growth and personal satisfaction starts with your own self-awareness.
“The way that we view leadership is always changing. If you pull leadership from the past 100 years, you will see leadership used to be about authority, loyalty, and impressing the will of the leader on those being led. Now, leadership is really measured by your ability to transform a diverse group of humans into a cohesive, effective, and passionate team.“
Participating in different assessment trainings like DiSC™ training can help.
