How to Manage and Work With Different Genders and Generations!

Candy Whirley, CSP - Professional Speaker & Author

August 8, 2017 | 11:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m

Have you ever wondered why it's so hard to work with OTHER generations? Do you REALLY know what Gen Y's are thinking? Have you ever wanted to ask this question to other generations..."How do I work with YOU?".  If you answered YES, buckle up as this presentation is for you!  If you answered NO - you are in serious denial!  This interactive, energetic and entertaining presentation will enable participants to recruit and manage top candidates by learning the differences between generations X, Y, Boomers, and Matures, and their work habits and goals. Candy will also share her knowledge of gender differences in order to help participants understand that there is truly a difference in communication and conflict management. Those who have experienced Candy already know this presentation would not be the same without one of her famous activities! Put on your hardhats, you will be building a BRIDGE!
