Dr. B introduces learners to a broad overview of generational differences. We will define the archetypes for each generation and explain the influences that impact how communication and perspectives differ from one generation to the next. Working together requires awareness of differences and strategies for living and working together. The workforce is an 80-year transitional cycle and so now, more than ever, we need to appreciate the distinctions of each generation. Millennials are moving into a more prominent position than ever before and the generations that follow will create changes in society that we never expected but will come to value and appreciate if we realize the reasons behind the changes.
