Strategic Communications: Technology, Generations and Cultures
Are you a Gen X supervisor overseeing a babyboomer subordinate, or vice versa? Have you noticed that your subordinate doesn’t seem to share your same work ethic, and you are trying to find what will motivate that individual? Does your organization have traditional office hours with limited (if any) telework options, and you are finding this is a barrier to productivity?
Are you of the generation of texting, facebook and twitter that enjoys a flash party? You threw one to get a project done, and your babyboomer peers didn’t show up nor appreciate this innovative approach to project management? Do you struggle with miscommunications due to cultural differences in the workplace?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, or if you are either a supervisor with diverse or intergenerational subordinates, or a subordinate trying to effectively communicate with your boss, then this one day workshop is for you. This workshop will present a variety of different communication challenges (either generational, intercultural or via technology) and will look at methods to strategically navigate them to get your message across. It will also help you hear and understand the communications and motivations of others more effectively.
Please plan now to attend this one day workshop at the Library of Congress. Three leading speakers, Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project, Maureen Sullivan, ALA President, and Patricia Eng,, Nuclear Regulatory Commission Knowledge Center, will help us hone our communications skills. Continental breakfast and a full lunch are included in this workshop cost.
