The Generation Game

There are already four generations in the workplace, and soon to be five. 'They' say that Gen Y are flighty and that the older generations make more mistakes. 'They' call Generation Y the 'me, me, me' generation yet Time magazine thinks they will change the world. What are the generations, what are their differences, how do they view work, what do they each value in work?

Pulling on the latest research and background information, this seminar considers all of these factors and more. Looking at the different behavioural traits of each, together with the political, cultural and technological factors that impacted each, we will consider where their strengths lie, the respective value propositions to drive motivation and potential areas of inter-generational conflict.

'If you go to only one seminar this year, make sure it's this one. Russell is an exciting, engaging speaker and captivates his audience from his first word to his last.'
Feedback from a Baby Boomer attendee

'How many times have you left a seminar thinking you could have done something much more productive? This will be the best time you can spend if you want to know what makes your colleagues tick. As a babyboomer managing a young team, this seminar helped me to understand the motivation, the values and the beliefs of my team and I raved about this presentation for months afterwards. I retired at the end of January and this is by far the best presentation I have ever seen (and I've seen a few over the last 40 years...)'
Sue Harris - ex-CRA manager, Novartis

'What a talented speaker! This seminar really opened my eyes to the diversity of mindset within the workplace. Learning about the different generations and what makes them tick was really thought provoking. One size definitely does not fit all.'
Feedback from a Generation Z attendee
