Millennials, Baby Boomers and Gen Xers: Taming a Volatile Mixture
According to Stroope, more often than not when Millennials, Baby Boomers and Gen Xers work together, conflict arises. If, as a recent Pew poll indicates Millennials have indeed overtaken Baby Boomers as America’s largest generation, potential for conflict may be higher than ever. “Managers are desperately trying to understand what makes millennials so different from previous generations, and how they can help them bridge generational differences to improve organizational productivity,” said Stroope. “TKI insights can improve organizational productivity by making people aware of how they naturally tend to approach conflict, and empowering them to use the conflict-handling style that will be the most appropriate and effective in a given situation.”
During this webinar, Stroope will explain how to:
- Appreciate generational differences and the impact they have on communication and coaching
- Understand the five TKI conflict-handling styles and their unique advantages and uses
- Apply the TKI assessment to help individuals understand their primary conflict style, the kinds of situations in which it is most appropriate, and when to use the other four styles
- Use the TKI assessment to help millennials understand their reactions to conflict and how they can more effectively communicate and manage conflict with others
- Apply tips for communicating, coaching, and managing conflict across generations
