In this final course in the series, you learn specifically how generational diversity should affect you as a leader. This course builds upon the cohort definitions and introductory traits that you have already learned in class one (Managing in a Multi-Generational Workplace: Defining the Generational Cohorts) and the definition of what a multi-generational workplace looks like in class two (Managing in a Multi-Generational Workplace: The Cohorts at Work).

In Managing in a Multi-Generational Workplace: Managing Generational Diversity, we discuss the cohort’s definitions of an ideal leader/instructor, key job and education motivators and their ideal workplace and classroom.  We then discuss managerial issues we have had in the past with employees that can further our understanding of multi-generational management, picking one specific generational management problem and using the Generational Management Decision Tree to personalize the information received.  We end with a culminating discussion specifically focused on how the generational differences in members of your team can best be capitalized upon when you return to your workplace.

Research-based with well-articulated distinctions and actionable steps. Seems about one quarter of time spent on a generational cohort (so-called veterans born from 1922 through 1943) whose members would have to be working at least 75 years old to apply what was taught about them. The rest of time makes up for it.
