About the Keynote
Managers in the 21st century are noting signiﬁcant change as new generations, international employees, and people of diverse backgrounds are having a dramatic impact on the workplace. For the first time in history, four distinct generations are working together. Differing beliefs, expectations, values, and learning styles may contribute to conflict in the workplace. Learn to create a culture that fosters healthy communication and collaboration. We’ll discuss a wide spectrum of communication skills related to gender interaction. Learn the necessary skills to identify and understand key issues related to misconceptions and stereotypes based on various cultures. Understand how younger generations change workforce norms.
