Standard: $30.00


Today’s work teams often have team members from at least three generations—and in some cases four generations—working together. Work teams include a group of individuals reporting to a common supervisor, but can also include a multigenerational group of individuals working on a common project or task. Each generation has different learning and developmental experiences, and brings unique values and attitudes to the table. Creating and managing multigenerational teams requires some unique skills and techniques. This panel discussion explores techniques used in creating and managing multigenerational teams that can unleash the energy, creativity, and productivity of multigenerational teams and bring transformational results to an organization. The panel members include members of a multigenerational team as well the conference keynote speaker, Lt. Col (ret.) Rob “Waldo” Waldman.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the strengths and talents each member of a multigenerational team brings to that team.
  • Build a culture of trust in a multigenerational team.
  • Capitalize on the energy and creativity that a multigenerational team brings to a project or task.
  • Create an environment where each team member finds personal satisfaction in serving the common mission of the organization.
