Bridging the Generation Gap at Work

with Dr. Mary Donohue

About This Class

Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z all have one thing in common: we have to figure out how to best communicate with coworkers from different generations.

Whether your team is hybrid, fully remote, or back in the office, communication is essential. That statement is even truer with a multigenerational workforce. Each generation has been influenced by different cultural, social, and political landscapes that have shaped communication styles and technology preferences. This class is designed to help you and your team improve work relationships, as well as increase productivity and employee engagement.

Together we will:

  • Learn to leverage technology for all age demographics
  • Become more effective digital communicators
  • Bridge generation gaps to build stronger relationships

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
