We currently have four different generations in the workplace. Each group has unique characteristics, attitudes, perspectives, working skills and approach. How can individuals and firms embrace the diversity among these generations? What kinds of keys to workplace success are there while individuals work with these groups? What approaches can companies employ in order to integrate these groups successfully into the work place and relate to a growing millennial workforce to maximize their productivity?
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce sees this as topic worthy of discussion; therefore, as part of the 2017 Diversity Summit, LEVERAGING HUMAN DIFFERENCE: A Strategic Priority for Business Success & Community Prosperity on October 17th, Kristin Meyer with 20-year experience as a presenter will facilitate the session, “Navigate Four Generations in the Workplace.” This workshop will address the difference among these diverse groups and the methods you can apply to connect with these generations in an effective way.
As a professional trainer and coach, Kristin Meyer has worked for multinational corporations in various roles, such as sales manager, communications manager, and training manager. She completed multiple trainer certification programs, became an expert on adult learning principles, and received career and life coach certification in early 2015. What incredible achievements she completed are numerous half marathons, five full marathons, three half Ironman triathlons and one full Ironman triathlon. She now works with individuals and groups to identify barriers and develop plans to conquer that which stands in their way.
Kristin Meyer came from Massachusetts and had her Bachelor degree in Sociology from the University of Vermont. She travelled with a group called Up With People where she joined 130 other 18 to 27 years olds from 20 countries and saw the world through persons living in the host family homes there every three to five days, serving community and engaging in a musical performance over the course of one year. Visiting over 30 different countries on four continents also equipped her with knowledge of diverse generations. She had an internship in Panama City, Panama and her last semester in Barcelona, Spain when she studied International MBA program at the University of South Carolina.
