Please Respect My Generation!
5 Generations at Work
DVD which includes Meeting Opener, Facilitator's Guide and Reproducible Participant Materials plus Customizable PowerPoint Presentation on CD-ROM
(Program length: 23 minutes)
For the first time, we have as many as five different generations together in the workplace. Please Respect My Generation! bridges the gap between them and shows audiences how to avoid conflict and increase productivity in their generationally diverse workplace. By learning about life experiences, values, and ideas of all five generations, participants gain a better understanding of their coworkers as it relates to their own experience and behavior. For example, learn what our newest generation, Generation 9/11, and our oldest, the Traditionals, have in common. Both managers and employees will gain insight and learn simple dos and don'ts when dealing with coworkers of different generations. All five generations discuss their own generational traits and that of their coworkers. Learn to communicate better, deal with change, increase productivity, and develop a more respectful workplace. Please Respect My Generation! 5 Generations at Work integrates respect and unity at work for people at all stages of life.
INCLUDES 3-MINUTE MEETING OPENER/CLOSER!
