The Future of Work to 2030

This session for all types of employees will address how the global workplace, organizations, and employees will change in the next 10-20 years.  By exploring the implications of these developments, individuals will be in an excellent position to be both productive and competitive in the workforce of tomorrow.

They Don’t Teach Corporate in College

Managing the Millennials

This session for Baby Boomer and Generation X managers will provide an overview of the attitudes, behaviors, expectations, and communication styles of today’s twenty-somethings and will explore tactics for recruiting and effectively retaining them long-term.

Communicating Across the Generations

This session for employees of all ages will share some of the communication frustrations between the four generations currently in the workforce and provide attendees with concrete strategies to build a better sense of community in the organization.

Overcoming Gender Differences to Create a Winning Team

This highly engaging and interactive session will educate attendees on documented gender differences, By recommending specific communication strategies to reconcile men and women's sometimes conflicting perspectives, we empower both genders and help your female employees advance.
