Harnessing Tomorrow’s Talent

ProjectScotland’s in depth half-day workshop is delivered to key stakeholders, leaders and managers across your organisation who are keen to learn more and engage further in developing intergenerational working within their teams. The session has a specific focus on the so called ‘Generation Gap’ and will explore the differing work-styles associated across the various generational groups; ‘Baby Boomers’, ‘Gen X’, ‘Millennials’ and ‘Gen Z’ in the context of your own day to day roles. There is also an opportunity to explore what your organisation ‘says it is like to work for’ (in the context of experiences for young people) versus the ‘actual reality’ of your day to day working experience. Practical solutions of how to make ‘who you say you are’ and ‘who you actually are’ far more aligned are then explored.

This will benefit anyone who leads, manages or works in a team/office that works with young people (or has a mix of generations working in their team) and is looking to learn more about how to work with and motivate young people/millennials successfully. If you’re a millennial yourself, you will also gain great insights into your own working style and how to work with other generations – better adapting your skills to help you play your part in successful cross-generational team working.

As this workshop will be valuable to many organisations, please do not book unless you are committed to attending.

This workshop is free thanks to funding from The Holywood Trust.
