The new wave of leaders is upon us.  Previously, we would assume the individuals with the longest tenure would be the ones in leadership roles but that is no longer the case.  Organizational leaders can be found in all generations and are often millennials.  Understanding how to communicate across generations is essential to landing a new job (especially if the hiring manager is younger than you).  This interactive training will bring to light challenges and opportunities to navigate these conversations, understand how technology is changing the work landscape and how to successfully communicate with coworkers across generations when you land the job.

By attending this session, you will learn:

  • Challenges and opportunities as an “over experienced” job seeker
  • Effective strategies to communicate across generations
  • Common drivers within each of the generations in the workforce
  • Technology and its impact on the workforce and work culture

Topic: Triage: Improving 3 Key Areas for Next Level Performance

Speaker:  Lisa Peskin

Location:  Penn State Great Valley, Malvern, PA

Triage is a methodology, developed by Business Development University (BDU), to help individuals and teams uncover what three areas, if improved upon, will have the biggest impact on performance. Once these three areas are identified, a developmental program can be put together to start closing the gaps. BDU's CEO Lisa Peskin will discuss the triage methodology and also share valuable tools to help systematically identify and address either your triage areas or those of your direct reports. She'll also talk about effective methodologies to improve key developmental areas in order to achieve desired results.

By attending this session, you will learn:

  • How to identify which key areas you need to improve upon for the biggest impact on performance
  • The methodology for understanding your metrics
  • How to gain a clear perspective on what you need to do moving forward based upon your findings
  • Some of the basic keys to success
