For the first time in the history of this country there are four generations in the workforce. As trainers, you may work with learners spanning all four generations! Each generation has specific characteristics, such as traits, values, ethics and preferred work styles that have been formed from the experiences of their formative years. These differences, like learning styles and cognitive development, can significantly influence the way people learn. This highly interactive presentation will help you understand these unique generational differences, so that you can customize your learning approaches and strategies to help your clients learn in ways that truly fit their needs.
