Leading an Intergenerational Workforce
06/11/2024 8:00 AM
Between rising retirement ages and exponentially faster evolving technologies, the generational gaps in the workforce are more pronounced than ever. Many of us struggle relating to coworkers in such drastically different stages of life, career, and growth. This can make working together feel like we’re trying to have a conversation while speaking different languages. As leaders we face a significant challenge in creating collaborative, productive and aligned teams until we can bridge the gap.

In this workshop, Matt Dunsmoor, will facilitate discussions addressing the common obstacles to leading teams with a diverse range of ages and experiences. With breakout activities focused on tactical methodologies, and Q & A to help you make sure you’re all speaking the same language at your org.

Matt Dunsmoor has been helping leaders tackle the challenges of the workplace of tomorrow for over a decade across dozens of different industries.

With over 10 years of experience as a facilitator and speaker with groups like Octopy, Simon Sinek’s The Optimism Company, and more, Matt brings the perfect blend of accessibility and expertise to any event. His lighthearted approach, wide array of work experience, and ability to illustrate complex subjects with simple, everyday examples allows Matt to deliver powerful messages that resonate with audiences across the board.

He and his team at Octopy have taken a data & science-driven path toward creating more human-focused leaders and workplaces. His approach involves not only sharing leadership theory, but more importantly, helping you apply it to your individual organization & challenges to make it practical.
