Thank You Laura Barron – Leading In A Multi-Generational World?©

The American workforce is currently experiencing conflict between four or five very different generations, wasting talent and energy. For managers, employees, customers and suppliers to interact effectively and produce the various results they each want, they each must understand where the other generations are coming from. What is driving each generation and what are their needs and desires?

We will explore each generation’s strengths, values and beliefs and what was happening when they grew up.  This program focuses on identifying opportunities for each generation to succeed and value each other. Come discover ways to tap the potential of every generation and to bridge the gaps.

Laura Barron energizes, informs and mobilizes people to create long-term positive solutions. She works with organizations to increase their effectiveness in three specialty areas: communication, performance management and leadership.  Her 25 plus years of management experience includes customer service, training and development and project management which translates to real world solutions for her clients.

The November Salon is sponsored by Tropical Smoothie Cafe (9161 Kingston Pike – near Main Event). There is more than smoothies to Tropical Smoothies!
