Managing across Generations

Topic Contract and Project Management

CPD Hours 7

Overview

This interactive one day workshop has been designed to take account of the emergence of millennials in the workplace.

The workshop defines what it means to be a millennial and explores the differing character, philosophy and expectations of this generation. It considers how some traditional leadership and management theories and practices need to either be abandoned or modified to ensure they continue to be effective.

Attendees will leave with a greater appreciation of exactly what they need to adapt and how they can develop themselves to create the best possible environment to attract, retain and maximise the new workplace generation.
