Following the "bathtub" effect of a generation of federal leaders retiring, replacements are being actively sought in young professionals, some of whom are coming straight out of college. This creates a unique set of challenges for senior executives and program managers as well as for the new employees themselves. Short-term and long-term retention will hinge on the employees of different generations understanding one another's strengths and weaknesses.

In this workshop you will develop strategies to anticipate generational conflict and improve communication and teamwork among a multigenerational workforce. Most importantly, you will learn who today's generations are, what motivates them as workers, and how they will shape our nation's future.

Program Benefits:

  • Gain a better understanding of demographic trends and their effect on the workforce
  • Develop tools to engage and motivate across generations
