A Free Webinar on Closing the Generational Divide

The consulting firm VitalSmarts is a great resource for improving communication skills. They are offering a free webinar in two weeks on the ever-present issue of managing the younger generations.  They won’t answer the question, “What’s the matter with kids today?”  The answer to that question has been “nothing” since we have walked upright.  (Remember, Boomers, our elders asked the same question about us.)  Mr. Maxfield will have practical solutions to improving our understanding and effectiveness in managing “kids today.”

In a recent VitalSmarts and ASTD Workforce Development Community joint study of more than 1300 respondents, we found that more than 1 in 3 people report wasting 5 or more hours each week (12% of their workweek) on conflict between different generations. Our study also revealed that all generations struggle to hold their colleagues accountable and engage in productive dialogue.

So how do you overcome the “great generational divide” and mitigate resentment between Baby Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials?

We invite you to join New York Times bestselling author David Maxfield, for a complimentary webcast on Wednesday, March 26, where he will discuss four skills you can use to candidly and respectfully resolve conflict and improve productivity in today’s multi-generational workplace.

With registration, you’ll receive access to the complete study findings and other helpful resources. This event will also be recorded and sent to all who registers. You must register in order to get access to the replay.

About stephenomeara

My name is Jim Jordan. I have had the privilege of working with the Boston Police Department and hundreds more departments over my nearly 30-year career in police administration and city government. I am now teaching and consulting independently at www.sergeantsleadership.org. I have learned the best of what I know from the thousands of smart, dedicated and ethical police personnel and scholars who have guided me along the way. My address is named for the great Reform commissioner of the Boston Police at the turn of the 20th century. Commissioner O'Meara died just a short while before the Strike in 1919. He was replaced by a vicious puppet (of Gov. Coolidge) named Edwin U. Curtis. Had O'Meara lived events may have turned out quite differently.
