For the first time in history, we now have four distinct generations in the workplace: Traditionalists - born before 1945; Baby Boomers – born between 1946 and 1965; Gen X - born between 1965 and 1977; and Millennials – born between 1978 and 1995. In addition, a new generation of employees (Gen 2020, born after 1995) has already started to enter the workforce.
Combine all these generations together and you’re bound to see sparks – in fact, 60% of employers report intergenerational conflict and tensions in their workplace. This in turn can affect worker retention, engagement and productivity.
Our Mini-MBA in Intergenerational Leadership will help you understand what makes these different generations tick. From there you will learn and apply the strategies and tools you need to effectively work with and lead across generations.
