Overview:

Dealing with generational issues in the workplace and how to most effectively engage different groups, Tamara Erickson helps build and manage successful, innovative organizations. Combining an undergraduate degree in Biological Science from the University of Chicago with an MBA from Harvard, she offers a humane perspective on modern management. She explores the fundamental differences between generations in today’s workforce and the specific changes and challenges this presents. Erickson’s most recent research, in collaboration with the London Business School, investigates how teams work within multinationals. This work has been recognized as the most extensive academically–grounded study of industry–based teamwork ever. Erickson has also co–authored four publications in the Harvard Business Review, and discusses these themes weekly in her blog on the Harvard Press site entitled “Across the Ages”. A McKinsey Award–winning author, she is well respected for her expertise in collaboration and innovation.

What you will learn:

Three generations are working together in today’s workplace – characterized as Boomers, Gen X and Gen Y, each bringing different experiences and assumptions to the job. As the talent shortage grows, it’s increasingly important to create a culture that is welcoming and engaging for talented individuals of all ages. Tamara Erickson will help you understand the underlying evolution of the assumptions each generation brings to work.

• Getting ready for the future of the work: navigating a multigenerational workplace
• Dealing with different experiences, different assumptions and different expectations
• How to create a culture that fosters and engages talented individuals of all ages
• Achieving extraordinary levels of engagement: there is no single best practice –communicate, collaborate, connect, make sense
• Managing tomorrow’s people: moving towards an open, social and collaborative workplace
