Questions to consider:
· Which generational issues are most pressing to your business today?
· How can you instill your company's values into the younger generation you employ?
· How do you find key talent to develop into tomorrow's leaders?
· How do we bridge the gap between "old school" and "new school" thinking?
· How do we help all generations communicate better in the workplace?
Are you are part of an organization that spans the generations from Millennial to Baby Boom? Multiple generations within the same organization can often lead to unforeseen issues, including a fractured company culture, confusion with leadership, and employees who are not engaged.
Engaged employees are more likely to perform better on the job leading to higher productivity, profitability, and customer ratings. An engaged workforce leads to less turnover, absenteeism, and on-the-job safety incidents. So, how do you create a cohesive culture and effective company that spans the generations?
For company owners, the generational shift has created an unprecedented set of challenges. Millennials have forced us to re-think the way we look at recruiting, training, talent management, reviews, promotions, and the use of technology in the workplace.
Amanda will walk you through how to create a culture to attract and retain the right fit talent, and how to foster communication across generational lines, and will give you tools and strategies that you can use to create an engaged workforce that wants to grow with your organization.
Amanda Laden has over 15 years of proven global business experience in management, leadership, and creating engaged workforces in small, medium, and large organizations. Amanda’s expertise revolves around helping organizations create a cultural blueprint for change and success.
Amanda received a B.A. degree in Law from American University and an MBA from the KOGOD School of Business at American University. She is also a certified DiSC trainer and has a studied human and organizational behavior for several years. She is a lifelong learner, avid traveler, and lived in the UK for 10 years. She also holds a certificate in Strategic Intervention Coach Training from the Robbins-Madanes Center.
