Bridging the Generational Gap
The workplace at OHSU is becoming increasingly diverse. Employees from four generations – Traditionalist, Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y – are toiling alongside each other. The differing views, goals, attitudes, and work values can result in misunderstanding and tension between the age groups. Participants in this workshop will learn to recognize and appreciate the unique qualities of each generation, and how to communicate better and manage conflicts that arise among them.
• Identify the reality of the generational gap at work
• Define four different generational cultures
• Decode generational miscommunications
• Recognize and resolve real-life intergenerational issues
