Leveraging Multi-Generational Teams

  • About this program:
  • During this interactive and engaging session Laraine Kaminsky of Global LK will invite participants to understand and leverage multigenerational teams by focusing on the following objectives:

    ¬ To build understanding, respect and appreciation of different generations within the team
    ¬ To learn strategies for working with and effectively managing members of multiple generations
    ¬ To develop good practices around addressing multigenerational issues and opportunities when building organizational capacity as it relates to recruitment, retention, training, performance management and development, with a focus on the legal field

    Through the use of various media including a generational quiz, videos and entertaining and engaging references to both business and pop culture, Laraine will cover a lot of territory by:

    ¬ Sharing the defining moments of each cohort to leverage understanding of the four generations active in the workforce today: Veterans (1945 or before); Boomers (1946-1964); Generation X (1965-1979) and Generation Y (1980-2000),
    ¬ Analyzing the demographic trends associated with each generation (Veterans: New Elderly, Boomers: Re-wiring, Generation X: Global Nomads, Generation Y/Little Emperors: The “Net-Gen”),
    ¬ Unpacking and dispelling the stereotypes that exist around each group, and
    ¬ Discussing approaches to development, retention and leveraging the strengths of each generation by building bridges and cultivating relationships between multigenerational team members.
