How to Communicate More Effectively to Multiple Generations
If you think generational gaps are just about age, think again, say our featured speakers and experts in intergenerational communication. Generation gaps derive from differences in how a generation is raised, experiences growing up, and the impact of technology, among other factors. Our presenters punctuate their theories with humor and examples from pop culture, as we learn the tendencies of each generation's values, beliefs, attitudes, and concerns, and how they inform professional, as well as interpersonal interactions.
