They Drive Me Crazy! Bridging the Generational Divide

While the youngest cohort in the workforce is often stereotyped as entitled, lazy and lacking commitment, great rewards can come to organizations and managers who understand what makes Millennials tick and how to get them fully engaged. Both parties need to define their expectations and determine ways to utilize the strengths of one another in order to be successful. By putting all the issues on the TABLE(Technology, Authority, Balancing Work/Life, Loyalty and Entitlement), this session helps both older and younger talent in your organization bridge that generational gap and work together more effectively – and will help you relate better with donors of all ages.
