An Introduction to Multi-Generational Behaviour in Organisations
This introductory-level workshop aims to approach the concept of generational influence from the observation and consideration of the workplace context. With a greater understanding of the generational influences on staff, their generic characteristics and their decision-making process, managers would be better able to adapt to the changing workforce landscape.
The 1 day Workshop will be conducted using a mix of Knowledge Sharing and Practice based on the following:
- An introduction to Generational Behaviour & Influences
- Building a MultiGenerational Matrix
- Contextual Application to Workplace
- Concept 1 (An introduction to Generational Behaviour & Influences) This module explores the mean behavioral characteristics and behavioral differences between the commonly segregation by Generation; Baby Boomers, Generations X, Y and Z customers. The participants will have a basic understanding of these different segregation and be able to correlate them back to observed behaviour in the workplace.
- Concept 2 (Building a MultiGenerational Matrix) This module allows particpants to work in teams to construct a simple 1 x 1 MultiGenerational Matrix and possibly even a 2X2 MultiGenerational Matrix, which will encompass a wider collection of distinctions such as Gender, Culture or Religion in addition to Age (Generation).
- Concept 3 (Contextual Application to Workplace) This module builds on the previous 2 Concepts and looks at Workplace examples. Then, using the MutliGenerational Matrix as a guide (construct), they will then present how the understanding of the 2 concepts will aid the team in the formulation of a strategy to reduce Generational Conflict (aka Generational Gaps) and make more effective use of the diversity in the teams.
