LEADERSHIP TOPIC:  Leading Across the Generational Divide
Over time the definition of what makes a great leader has changed, and the generations often view the role of leadership very differently.  Whether you’re a seasoned veteran directing those younger than you are, an experienced Gen Xer juggling multiple generations, a skilled Millennial managing upward, or struggling to connect with all the generations, Lynne’s practical and entertaining insights will help you:

  • Understand who the generations are and how their views of leadership have changed
  • Quantify generational gaps in recruiting, engaging, communicating, retaining 
  • Increase your effectiveness by understanding how to engage each generation

WORKPLACE TOPIC:  Solving the Generational Puzzle  
It used to be that older workers had all the answers and the younger ones followed orders.  How things have changed!  Now, with four generations vying for a place at the conference table, roles are being rewritten, and rules are all over the map.  More importantly, every generation wants to make a contribution, do work they care about, and be respected and engaged at work.  Don’t miss Lynne Lancaster’s funny, insightful take on how to:

  • Identify communication gaps in your workplace
  • Understand the causes of generational misunderstandings and frustration
  • Master day-to-day situations involving teamwork, feedback, and collaboration

MILLENNIAL TOPIC:  The M-Factor—How the Millennial Generation is Rocking the Workplace
Based on her best-selling business book by the same name, Lynne introduces audiences to the newest generation at work.  With insight and humor she reveals what shaped the Millennials and provides tips to help managers, leaders and co-workers understand: 

  • What does it take to recruit, retain, and engage Millennials?  
  • Why do they see the world of work so differently?
  • How do we get the most out of this talented workforce? 

MARKETING/CUSTOMER SERVICE TOPIC: What a Difference a Generation Makes! Connecting with Multiple Generations of Clients and Customers 
Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials, and now Gen Z, view marketing and service very differently.  They show up with a confounding array of expectations that can leave service providers and marketing scratching their heads. 

Whether you are a seasoned professional or just starting out in your career, it pays to understand how you can engage meaningfully with each generation.  Lynne’s content includes insights into how to:

  • Identify generation gaps in your marketplace
  • Rethink marketing strategy along generational lines
  • Engage one generation without turning off another

BABY BOOMER TOPIC:  Boomers’ Next Chapter—Evolution or Revolution?
Generational expert Lynne Lancaster charts the course of the Baby Boom generation as they age, lead, consume, transition, and transform themselves.  Whether it’s a gradual evolution or a full-on revolution, this generation will change the world with their sheer numbers, their ability to reinvent on their feet, and their insistence on remaining relevant.  Whether you are marketing to this diverse generation or managing and leading them you’ll benefit from understanding them.
