Generation Gap Training
Generation Gap Training
Ideally, the workplace is one which caters to various perspectives, ideas, beliefs and ideologies. Employees often reach out to one another to make various ends and gaps meet. However, there is another kind of gap which may be harder to bridge than sexuality, religion or citizenship, and this is one of generation. Generations, both old and new, offer various perspectives based on their historical and cultural backgrounds. However, disagreements can arise as the newer generation might think that older ideas are obsolete and the older generation might think that these new ideas are too foreign or eccentric. Consequently, both generations have to figure out how to get rid of their differences and prejudices and tap into each other for inspiration, wisdom and experiences. Our training session caters to this exact purpose.
Here, employees will figure out some of the reasons why prejudices even arise between both generations and how to communicate between generations more effectively and efficiently. Whether you are young, in your mid-life or later years, this training session will help you learn about the value of exploring perspectives throughout generations.
Our trainers develop the Generation Gap program by discussing the need for different generations to be in the workplace and how they benefit each other. We also discuss some of the areas where communication and understanding may fail, and also how values can change our motives and actions.
When speaking with different cultures, or different generations, we need to apply our own communication skills differently to connect. Learning more about how to adapt our communication to help others understand our message will assist with a clearer more effective communication effort.
There are a range of organizational strategies that will help workplaces overcome the generation gap issue. Our trainer discusses this area with participants so they are able to learn from real examples.
Many workplaces will realize the importance of having a diverse workforce. This part of the session assists all to understand how an organisation will look the generation gap when hiring staff.
