Working Together in an Intergenerational World  

Wednesday, November 25
3 hour session 1 pm - 4 pm CST 
Register by:  Monday, November 23rd 

Facilitator Brenda Robinson of the Robcan Group

Today's world is different. This can present you with a challenge or a chore - the choice is yours.  What can we do to encourage intergenerational understanding?  Have we joined the "I" generation?  Are we isolated, insulated, independent, individualized and sometimes even indifferent?  Do we pre-judge and get set in our ways?  What about the new generations?  What motivates younger people to work with us?  Is the new era difficult - or just diverse in ways of thinking and doing?  Working together works when we work at it!  Diversity builds the strength we need.  Understanding differences can lead to enhanced decision making and informed processes.  Celebrating differences will bring excitement and energy to the work we do.

REGISTER HERE Nov 17th!!!      REGISTER HERE Nov 25th!!!
