The Platinum Rule: Coaching Across Generations

Presented by Suzanne Kaplan

In this collaborative session, we will cut through the hype and stereotypes surrounding Millennials and the multi-generational workforce and focus on the knowledge and skills both internal and external coaches need to address the generational impact on communications, styles, work habits, motivators and expectations. At the program’s conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the historic shift in our workforce generational makeup, how it is driving change, and the challenges it creates for organizations, individuals and leadership
  • Identify the characteristics of each generation and have the knowledge to proactively challenge assumptions and stereotypes that prevent full utilization of talents.
  • Learn specific and concrete strategies that can be used immediately for engaging and developing emerging Millennial talent
  • Develop more positive work relationships with clients and colleagues to improve multi-generational collaboration.
