Georgia Tech-Savannah Offers an Online Leading Well Workshop on Managing and Leading a Multigenerational Organization

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Tuesday, April 14th, 2020

Registration is now open for Georgia Tech-Savannah’s Leading Well Virtual Workshop on Managing and Leading a Multigenerational Organization. Longtime and award-winning educator Melissa Furman, MS, DBA will instruct tomorrow’s leaders, via an online platform, on a topic that impacts all workforces. This high-level leadership training will prepare participants in a variety of industries; including those active in business, education, government, nonprofit, and community based organizations.

The workshop will be offered in two parts. The course will begin online on Tuesday, May 5th from 10 - 11:30am. The second portion, to complete the workshop, will be on Thursday, May 7th from 10 - 11:30am. The cost for the full workshop is $595 per student.

Those that complete the two-day course will learn strategy for overcoming challenges and enhance their overall productivity, goal achievement, and employee satisfaction. Furman will educate them on how to identify, describe, and differentiate generational cohort characteristics, communication, and work style. She will also provide strategies for overcoming challenges experienced when working with employees from multiple generations.

The new professionals entering the workforce are members of Generation Z and they are VERY different from the Millennial generation. Now, more than ever, organizations need to be equipped with different recruitment, retention, management, and training methods that align with both generations.

“My goal is for these emerging leaders to walk away feeling as though they are able to enhance employee relations, productivity, and management effectiveness across generations,” says Dr. Furman. “I want them to confidently recruit and retain employees; and have an increased appreciation for diversity in the workplace.”
