4Gen: Generational Influences on Organizational Culture
Take advantage of your BMA membership benefits by attending this free workshop for members only!
This highly interactive workshop is designed to explore the societal and historical influences that shape how each generation influences today's organizational culture. Participants explore current themes in organizational dynamics and leadership while considering trends for the future.
An organization's culture is highly complex and impacted by multiple dynamic factors, including multiple generations at work. Each generation developed its perspective toward leadership, communication, technology and professional goals differently and these drive how we interact with each other. Through this workshop, we discuss the historical and societal influences that shape these perspectives and in turn how they drive business culture.
We will focus on creating an awareness of the influence each generation provides in the workplace and an awareness of appropriate strategies for understanding others and communicating with them. Specifically, participants will leave with:
- an understanding of specific challenges or conflict within their organization from a new perspective;
- strategies for leading teams based on the generational makeup;
- strategies for retaining top Gen X and Millennial talent;
