April Breakfast – Managing Across Generations

Title: Managing across Generations
Location: Dutton Gregory, St Peter’s Street, Winchester. SO23 8BT
Time: from 8.30 am to 9.45 am
Date: Tuesday 16th April 2013
Guest speaker: Dr. Nigel Paterson
The relevance to People Management: each generation can have its own values and behaviours, and it takes skill to manage the best of all points of view without unnecessary conflict

Management of diversity has become a very important skill in the workplace. Part of this is the ability to manage across generations successfully enough that staff enjoy and even speak enthusiastically about the multi-generational environment in which they work. The same principles can be applied rather similarly to all-age voluntary organisations and even to extended families.

Nigel will give a brief overview of the generations commonly found in the workplace, including their customary likes and dislikes. This will lead to the exploration of a number of ideas for best practice.

Nigel Paterson is a trainer and educator who works part-time for Richard Lewis Communications in Warnford, giving training to overseas business people, academics, government officers and politicians in business and cross-cultural communication. He also works part-time for a thriving, all-age church in Hedge End.
