Generations at Work

For the first time in American history veterans, baby boomers, genXers, and millennials are working together and in close quarters. In order to be effective communicators we need to know how to adapt to different personality types, along with understanding the different generational issues that can create conflict in the workplace. This seminar provides practical solutions to help people bridge the generational gap.
