Course Description:  Our workforce is made up of 4 Generations in the workforce. Very few Seniors (or Veterans) remain, however the Boomers are next to retire, vacating more jobs than the nation has persons to fill with a gap of over 30 million and growing each year as new jobs are created. Along come the Millennials at nearly 80 Million strong to fill many of the vacated gaps.  But, is the Boomer dominant work culture ready for the Millennials?                                                

Come find out the answer to these questions and many more as we walk you through concepts and practical steps toward managing across generations.

Attendees will have a broader perspective of the Generations in the workforce and the core values of each.  Knowing these values, leaders may shape their communication to frame information in a way that it is most likely to be best received. By modeling discussion of the varying perspectives held by generations, we provide an example of a safe and compassionate environment to address and understand diverse views and begin implementing solutions based on our commonalities and purpose, rather than differences and a sense of control.

Tips for Measurement of Impact:                                                            

  • Attendees will begin to see within the varying roles they play, how to avoid behaving from a demographic bias.
  • Attendees will aim to be more inclusive in their communication both within and outside the organization.
  • Tips, tools and data from the presentation will be used to support initiatives and decision making in local organizations.
  • Authentic discussions around culture will begin to occur and be formally supported through revisions of corporate policy and procedure.

Preparing today’s and tomorrow’s leaders with the skills and competencies necessary to be effective, efficient and purpose aligned – leading to greater goal achievement through a more comprehensive view of workforce leadership and its impact on society, as well as organizations.

Currently, the United States has two generations in the workforce (Gen X and Millennials) soon to take the helm of their organizations and have received little-to-no formal or informal leadership development, due to a perceived threat to boomer leaders and an economic perspective that training is a luxury that could not be afforded.

As a result, Gen X and Millennials are woefully under prepared to take on leadership and management roles in replacement of the retiring boomers.  These two external conditions and responses to them have created a true Leadership Crisis.  Leading Maryland has recognized this fact and serves to close the skills gaps in support of Businesses and Leaders across the State of Maryland.

Leading Maryland recognizes, organizations can’t not afford to train their leaders, recognizing their impact on company and employee achievement, as well as bottom line profits and losses.
