Communicating across the age groups is vital in the 21st century workplace

This one-day workshop, Overcome generational stereotypes to build a more competitive and healthy workforce, is to be held in Sydney on Wednesday 1 May 2013. It offers practical skills and tools that can be immediately applied in the workplace.

The workshop will inspire and develop participants’ leadership competencies to look beyond age stereotyping and to communicate more effectively across all age groups within the workplace.

Why is this workshop important?

Currently, people aged 18 to 70+ are working together with mixed results. Many workplaces are:

  • not getting the best from their most talented people across all age groups
  • experiencing loss of productivity and efficiency due to poor understanding about what motivates people from any age group
  • finding high attrition rates across age groups
  • have workers with diminished self-esteem, well-being and motivation.

By learning how to think beyond stereotypes, managers can develop strategies to better manage multi-generations. This results in happier, healthier people; more productive workplaces and less turnover of talented people.  It makes business sense to maximise engagement of all ages.

Who is this for?

Leaders and managers at all levels who are motivated to breakdown the barriers created by age stereotypes and who want to maximise age diversity and retention.

What will you learn?

You will:

  • Explore how the emotional, social and cognitive brain works for all people regardless of age
  • Understand the dangers of age stereotyping
  • Learn 10 neuro-principles for better engaging a multigenerational workforce
  • Understand how to connect with everyone in your organisation using simple ‘brain-based rules and practical techniques’
  • Learn how to create a workplace where individuals from all ages understand and appreciate each other’s value.
