Navigating Multiple Generations in the Workplace on January 25, 2019 at 11:00 am Central

Different generations are characterized by distinctive work ethics, communication preferences, and attitudes toward what makes work satisfying. Join Marcia Nicholson, human resources director at the Land Trust Alliance, for insights into embracing generational differences for your land trust’s success, and navigating the intermittent challenges of having up to five generations working together.

We will discuss tips to manage your multi-generational land trust, including:

  • Handling common multi-generational workplace challenges
  • Encouraging effective communication
  • Attracting talent to your staff and board from various generations
  • Creating a multi-generational roadmap for your organization

To register for this conference call, please email with your organization name, participant names, and email addresses. We will send you call-in information. Registration closes on Wednesday, January 23, 2019.
