Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Denver, CO - Jan 17, 2017 - Crestcom International launches its newest leadership development training class based on adult learning principles and generational research developed in collaboration with Amy Lynch, keynote speaker and founder of Generational Edge, a generational workforce research and consulting firm based in Nashville, TN.
In a recent multigenerational workplace survey conducted by Generational Edge, respondents from various industries revealed insights into common areas of generational conflict in the workplace. The good news is that these findings also provide insights into opportunities for leaders and managers to foster cross-generational collaboration, rather than conflict.
“Multigenerational leadership is a skill that almost no one was talking about until recently, but it is absolutely critical in today’s workplace for leaders to be able to bring their multigenerational team together to collaborate productively and have an impact on the business.”
With Baby Boomer employees staying in the workforce longer than expected and Millennials entering the job market at numbers exceeding both the Baby Boomers and Generation X employees before them, conflicts that leaders and employees alike can recognize have become a limiting force in productivity. Furthermore, Generation Z is just beginning to graduate and make their appearance in the workforce, making this perhaps the biggest demographic shift the workforce has ever seen.
Developing a multigenerational workforce is important to the long-term success of an organization. A diverse, multigenerational team is able to make better decisions and mirrors the consumer market. Unfortunately, leaders and managers are finding themselves ill-equipped to deal with the generational conflicts that often arise in the workplace. Their ability to overcome these conflicts and leverage the strengths of their multigenerational workforce to improve innovation, cross-generational collaboration, and productivity will determine the success of business growth.
The survey findings, titled 3 New Generational Realities, discusses three realities of the new workplace that multigenerational leaders must learn to use to facilitate collaboration and reduce conflict. The report goes further to discuss the financial impacts of continued generational conflict.
Partnering with Amy Lynch and Generational Edge, Crestcom announces today the introduction of its newest leadership training class. Bridging the Multigenerational Gap in the Workplace is designed specifically to help leaders and managers develop the multigenerational leadership skills they need to manage the new realities of a multigenerational workforce. Participants in Bridging the Multigenerational Gap in the Workplace will learn how to attract, hire, and retain top talent across the spectrum of generations in the workplace using practical multigenerational leadership communication, recognition, and collaboration techniques.
“I am very excited about this addition to our leadership development curriculum,” says Tammy Berberick, CEO of Crestcom International. “Multigenerational leadership is a skill that almost no one was talking about until recently, but it is absolutely critical in today’s workplace for leaders to be able to bring their multigenerational team together to collaborate productively and have an impact on the business.”
Bridging the Multigenerational Gap in the Workplace is just the newest addition to Crestcom’s The Bullet Proof® Manager leadership development program. The Bullet Proof® Manager is a 12-month interactive leadership development program that uses an immersive, blended learning approach to develop the practical skills leaders and managers need to produce real business results.
