Post Date:05/21/2019 1:22 PM


 JUNE 20, 2019| 11:00 AM (Special Start Time)

Managing multi-generational teams is easier said than done. Today’s teams are often plagued by issues regarding everything from work ethic and retention to succession and fairness.
Today, each generation is taking on new roles in the workplace. Millennials are no longer entry-level employees they are managers who may oversee older, more seasoned employees. Gen Xers have stepped up to the C Suite, reinventing and redefining what it means to be a leader. Boomers are transitioning and taking their careers in new directions and Gen Zers are now on the scene.
Join us on Thursday, June 20th, as the IBC hosts its Quarterly Executive Luncheon that focuses on management of the multi-generational workforce.
The IBC Board of Directors welcomes keynote speaker, Kim Lear, founder of Insight Inlay and expert in human behavior, who will give you a closer look into who these generations are and the trends emerging as they adapt to each new career stage. Her research, insights and original concepts will help you better understand each generation.
You’ll leave with a new appreciation for their unique perspective as they navigate the challenges of building effective teams in this brave new multi-generational workforce.
1. Identify and understand who the generations are in today’s workforce.
2. Identify the negative stereotypes that hold your team back and provide takeaways to lead a multi-generational team to build the next generation of leaders.
3. Solutions for mentorship, motivation & engagement of all generations.
4. Transform workforce & marketplace obstacles into opportunities.
