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. Things were fine until our father was downsized and mom got a job. This less than romantic view also left a mark on the children that followed. Events shape perceptions, perceptions become beliefs, and beliefs become the basis for our values. Welcome to the new world of work. 

Effective Dialogue Through Active Listening

This interactive session will explore the topic of Effective Dialogue through Active Listening. We’ll begin with a fun roleplay, and thereafter introduce a framework for Listening and Asking that begins with Mindset and delves into Effective Questions and the Iceberg Model. We'll have an opportunity to reflect with colleagues on our own successes and challenges in this space, and ultimately we'll tie the role that Dialogue plays back to Trust-based Relationships.

2023 Fellows and Pathfinders can register here on May 16.
