There are currently four generations in the workforce: Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and the Veterans. Each generation has unique characteristics. Unfortunately those differences are too often made negative and make working together feel like a challenge. Each generation’s world view affects how much the group as a whole learns, processes, and reacts to information. These varying world views can also effect leadership styles and behaviors in the workplace. This course provides a forum to learn about and discuss different world views, in this case due to generational identity, and how they have the ability to impact leadership style, supervisory style, how individuals react to their supervisor, level of performance, and things as simple (yet complex) as an employee’s general feeling of happiness in the workplace.
