May 21 Speaker Meeting: The Challenges of 5 Generations at Work

Isabella PierantoniOn May 21, 2014 Isabella Pierantoni, Sr Executive&Shadow Coach, will present:

“The challenge of five generations at work – how to successfully manage five generations at work at the same time”

The demographic revolution of the last 15 years all over the world has a challenging impact on the workplace. It means five different generations of values, norms, strategic thinking approaches, and priorities. Sometimes, such as in Italy nowadays, it also means that five generations are fighting for the same positions on the job market.

Research shows that multi-generational factors are internationally recognized as one of the elements that have the greatest impact on the workplace. By 2020 there will be a revolutionary generational change in leadership replacement! By that time, 40/50s, that have disappeared for some time from the work-radar should have entered the C-suite and there will be more millennial leaders than ever before.

At present there is a lot of pressure caused by these huge shifts in the workplace. Perhaps it’s time to play a different game, taking advantage of the various strengths and attitudes prevalent in all five generations and focusing on common goals to improve our lives and our professional targets.

Isabella Pierantoni will share her hands-on experience with companies and leaders on diversity and generational dilemma. All participants will explore with Generation’s Windows the view on Leadership Style, Perspective, Sense of Authority, Life and Work Values, Relationships Styles, learning about differences across generations, but more importantly, they will try to build upon shared attitudes and behaviors to reach out in appropriate ways to each generational group. The aim will be to look at a generational management tool as one of the keys to a manager’s success.

We’ll be exploring the art of deeply seeing others, and of allowing ourselves to be seen – examining layers of ‘social masks’ we don consciously and unconsciously.

We’ll be diving in to see how honestly and adventurously we can cut to the chase and create deeper connection with new people as well as with those you’ve ‘known’ for years.

Join us and expect to have fun while cultivating a deeper understanding of yourselves and what’s possible in your relationships.

The evening is focused on making valuable contacts to expand your professional network – bring plenty of business cards!
