Right Mind at Work: Finding common ground across generational gaps
If you’re an industry leader and find yourself angry, frustrated, hurt, confused, shocked, and exhausted at relating, communicating, mentoring, leading, building trust, and understanding with younger talent, then this session is for you! If you’re young and find yourself frustrated, tired of not being seen, heard, valued, given more responsibility, then this session is for you!
Regardless of which generation we belong to, it’s easy to rely on our entrenched methodologies that led to any current success -- yet applying those techniques to others fail to achieve our desired results. To become more compassionate, empathetic, transparent, vulnerable, and adaptable requires an incredible amount of energy and time which is often at odds with traditional structures.
In our research of asking executives, managers, senior creatives and young designers, we continue to hear that managers and team members feel lost and confused with each other, which contributes to younger creatives moving on in hopes that that will solve what they’re after. We also believe this is contributing to our cultural discontent, and worse, our disillusionment around life purpose and mission, creating even deeper divides between generations. We can do better!
We will explore all this and more in our session, Right Mind at Work.
