What Can We Do To Improve Cross-Generational Collaboration?

Because there may be as many as four generations with differing needs and perspectives in the workplace and other organizational settings right now, it’s particularly important to be able to foster effective cross-generational collaboration and communication. Intergenerational discord can interfere with engagement, productivity, and personal fulfillment in many different organizational settings so understanding and being able to address the most common contributors will have a substantial impact, freeing individuals to make the best use their capabilities rather than being mired in confusion and conflict.

While having individuals of different ages interacting with one another and working side by side to achieve common goals is nothing new, as the influence of each generation shifts, there is a heightened awareness of generational differences that is changing the conversation.

Please join us for the roundtable discussion on April 28th to engage in the conversation and discover what the primary intergenerational sticking points are and what we can do to address them. How can we make sure that we are creating an environment, regardless of the setting, that overcomes stereotyping, enables each individual to feel valued and respected, providing fulfilling and rewarding opportunities for everyone?

Please note: This is a “brown bag” event and it is recommended that participants bring their lunch to eat during the roundtable. We’ll also have beverages and popcorn or other snacks to share.

About the Roundtable: The Women’s Leadership Roundtable is a facilitated open forum for women, as leaders of themselves and others, to discuss relevant issues, build community and network, collaborate with, learn from, and support one another. It provides an opportunity for women to be heard, share their experiences, engage in thought-provoking discussion, and to generate ideas and growth together. The roundtable is an ongoing event, open to the public, held on the last Friday of every other month from January through September in a Denver area location. You are encouraged to attend as frequently as possible and bring your ideas, issues, and interests to the discussion. There is a $10 charge for the roundtable, paid in advance when registering online, and a $12 charge when paid at the door. For additional information, contact Karen McGee at 303-503-9681.
