  • Older generations don't work as smart as we younger people. They don't want to use technology...
  • Most managers who are Gen Xs expect the younger generation to commit equal hard work and complain if their juniors refuse.
  • Gen Ys have an unrealistic sense of entitlement. They want high salary and work positions than their experience and education dictate.

We are in the era where 3 distinct generations: Baby Boomers, Gen X and Y, all with their own perspective, styles and expectations are working together. These differences often create misunderstandings, stereotypes and conflicts. What used to work in the past no longer works now. Gen Xs are the new generation of leaders and Gen Ys are fastest growing workforce segment.

This workshop strives to uncover the differences, dismantle prejudices and sharpen sensitivities between the generations. We focus on the Malaysian workforce where our demographics are different from other countries. We examine the influence of culture, local values and the expectations of the different generations. We explore the qualities in making each generation successful and the organization to find its own success recipe on how to retain, develop and lead them across generations.
