Do you agree that the existence of differences among the four to five generations in the workplace are affecting productivity, retention, engagement, staff development, and succession planning? Do you realize that different mentoring approaches have similar goals? This session introduces a unique contemporary mentoring strategy that provides a two-way, mutually beneficial learning experience addressing these intergenerational challenges. The resulting outcomes are to retain and expand working relationships among the generations for reinforcing talent engagement and productivity and identifying future leaders.

By the end of this session you will:

  • Comprehend mentoring partnership as a two-way learning experience of mutual benefit whereby employee professional development options are expanded and individualized to meet specific needs and reinforce talent engagement and productivity.
  • Articulate and appreciate that mentoring partnerships are operational across the generations in the workplace and that mutual respect for values, priorities, work, and lifestyle differences are advanced.
  • Be knowledgeable about the benefits of talent engagement, productivity, and the identification of future leaders.
