Session: Leading a Multi-Generational Workforce
Speaker: Diane Thielfoldt, The Learning Café
Part I: Introducing the Multiple Generational Workforce
AIM is pleased to announce the release of the first of three modules developed from Diane Thielfoldt’s presentation at the 2015 AIM Leadership Development Conference. Part 1 describes a study of generational differences. As a social science, this study seeks to understand a cohort of groups of people. The learner is introduced to the four generations currently in the workplace – the Silent Generation, The Baby Boomers, Generation X and the Millennials. Understanding the different work styles of each generation likely demands flexibility but each generation can bring an essential positive influence to the success of any workplace.

Part 2: Generations at a Glance
Part 2 describes the challenges encountered within a multigenerational workplace – communication methods, work styles and career opportunities and provides the learner with five myths related to each generation. The influences associated with generational differences include life cycle events, major or current events and how culture and individual personalities shape traits and workplace behaviors
Part 3: Multigenerations in the Workplace
In this session, motivators and de-motivators of each generation are described, including what drives employee engagement and satisfaction and using these strategies to motivate each generation. The session demonstrates how each generation describes a good supervisor and provides strategies for successful management. The creation of a workplace climate that energizes and empowers employees is critical for positive outcomes as is customizing communication and clarifying careers. This session also describes how leveraging the assets of each generation influence the recruitment, engagement and retention of each generation.
