CLARA ROSE of 

 PRESENTS: Closing the Communication Gaps; Understanding our Differences

There is a serious new problem in the workplace and it has nothing to do with downsizing, corruption or global competition. Instead it is a problem created by distinct generations in the workforce.

We are experiencing a time in American history were we have four very different generations working side-by-side.

Veterans

Baby Boomers

Generation X

Generation Y

Individuals with different values, different ideas, different ways of getting things done and different ways of communicating are now occupying the same space.

The was a time when the boss was older, more experienced and mature. Younger workers did what was asked of them, no questions asked. There were definite social rules about how the boss was treated as well as social norms about how the younger workers treated older workers.

Times have changed, with the roles and the rules being rewritten often. Cultural and ethnic differences also play a larger role than ever before. Different abilities and disabilities surround us all in the workplace.

Discussion topics of this workshop take a look at those differences, to help create a better understanding of how to effectively work together.

"Education is the first step toward creating a culture of understanding and sensitivity in the work place".
