This week's presenter is Mandi Dornfeld, the Human Development and Relationships Education for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Winnebago County Extension.  She will present a workshop called The Communicating Across Generations workshop which is designed to help participants recognize the descriptors that define a generation and identify the forces that shaped their attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and worldview.


Never before in our nation’s history have so many people from so many different generations been in the workforce at the same time. As a result, individuals, employers, and organizations are presented with many challenges and many opportunities. Each generation brings diverse perspectives, values, needs, and expectations to the workplace. And those who can communicate effectively across generations have much to gain: 

• Learning to blend the distinctive creative energies and accommodate the different working styles of these generations creates a dynamic team. 

• Helping employees from divergent generations develop skills that enable them to appreciate their differences will greatly enhance production, quality of performance, and job satisfaction.
