ZPDC 330 - Multiple Generations Working
OMG! LOL! WUWT, or ?What?s up with that?? as people in a newer generation of communication may ask. We communicate in the workplace based on our generational backgrounds, distinct attitudes, behaviors, expectations, habits and motivations. Learning how different generations communicate at work can minimize misunderstandings; but we first must overcome our natural tendency to respond defensively when generational misunderstandings arise. By learning how to communicate non-defensively, along with a better understanding of ourselves and how individuals in different generations act and react, we can overcome communication style differences and communicate with more comfort and effectiveness across the generations.After attending this session, participants will be better able to:1.Describe some general characteristics commonly associated with a variety of generational cohorts.2.Understand the underlining assumptions that lead to generational stereotypes in the workplace.3.Recognize the conflicting/polarized views regarding generation cohorts.4.Respond to generational statements with non-defensive questions to help defuse defensiveness, seek clarity, and foster mutual understanding and respect.5.Develop and share approaches to foster productive communications and interactions with individuals from different generations.
