A series of free workshops are being held to help third sector organisations to learn more about and to develop intergenerational working.
The four dates will explore differing workstyles associated across the various generational groups.
The workshops have been funded by The Holywood Trust and will be run by ProjectScotland, in conjunction with Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway.
The half-day event will consider ‘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.
The workshops are on:
- Tuesday October 1 at Burns House, Stranraer – www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harnessing-tomorrows-talent-free-workshop-tickets-72496712619
- Thursday October 3 at Lochvale House, Dumfries – www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harnessing-tomorrows-talent-free-workshop-tickets-72504381557
- Tuesday November 5 at St Ninians Church Hall, Castle Douglas – www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harnessing-tomorrows-talent-free-workshop-tickets-72505101711
- Thursday November 14 at Lockerbie Town Hall – www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/harnessing-tomorrows-talent-free-workshop-tickets-72505504917
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.
