Generational Engagement: Featuring Dillon Kalkhurst
Date: October 16, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM EDT
Lakeland Chamber to co-host with the Winter Haven Chamber. Special thanks to our event sponsors: ASAP Prints and Bank of Central Florida!
For the first time in history, five generations are active in the workforce and the marketplace. Effective internal and external communication is now more important than ever. It is not a one generation challenge. Generational harmony requires a lot more than just trying to “understand Millennials.”
Learning to speak the language of your multi-generational co-workers and customers translates into more sales, productivity and harmony in the workplace, leading to less employee turnover, lower risk, higher profits and, most importantly, a more pleasant culture and environment for everyone.
In this interactive session, you will learn about each of the five generations starting with a selfawareness of your own generational preferences and values. You will explore and acknowledge the different generational stereotypes and finally, you will learn that your intergenerational friends, associates, and even family members may not be as difficult as you think. Perhaps they are just different.
In an informative and entertaining way, you will come to the conclusion that “age diversity” is a strength and learn to leverage it throughout the workplace and your life.
