About the Program
Successfully managing the performance and motivation of all stakeholders, whatever their age, is critical for the effectiveness of all organizations. As much critical is the need to move people away from stereotypes that abound in the intergenerational field. In this workshop based on neuroscience findings, you will discover how to leverage “brain-based” principles which are common between all age groups and how to take care of the few behavioral differences between them.
- Myths and realities about the generations
- The key differences between younger and older brains
- What is similar about the brain across age groups
- 8 neuro-principles to neutralize the difference and maximize similarity
- Practical collaborative techniques to improve performance, motivation and collaboration across all age groups
Give your organization the capacity to develop "intergenerational savvy" and:
- Improve engagement
- Increase productivity and innovation
- Build diversity especially a mature age strategy
- Reduce churn
- Decrease costs of intergenerational conflict
- Retain best talent
