Why I Find You Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work: 

People are living longer, working longer, and changing jobs more frequently than any other time in our history. The workplace and the workforce are no longer what it was when our father’s father left the house each morning, worked hard each day, did what the company asked, and retired when it was time to do so. This nostalgic view of work was probably more romance than reality, but the image left a mark on the generation that followed. Events shape perceptions, perceptions become beliefs, and beliefs become the basis for our values. Welcome to the new world of work.

You Say Tohmahtoh, I Say Tohmaydoh:

Effective communication is often approached through the lens of presence, clarity, active listening, and compassion. An obvious yet oft overlooked factor in effective communication and leadership is the role culture plays in what we hear, see, value, understand and how it shapes our actions, what motivates us and how we approach our success journey. In this session we will tackle inclusive communication, communication and trust and how this impacts us as leaders.

2023 Fellows and Pathfinders can register here beginning May 16.
