Session Length: 4 Hours
Target Audience: Anyone!
The construction world is changing. Time is ever more scarce with a 24 hour workday. Technology moves faster and the generational gap widens. Keeping up can feel exhausting!
Rest easy though, humans have a superpower. Some animals survived to modern times by virtue of sharp claws, massive strength, tough hides or unbelievable speed. Humans, by comparison, don’t have any physical quality that has contributed to our survival. At first, it doesn’t look like we should still be here at all! But that’s only because our superpower is invisible.
As the work place changes around us, we change too, and more than perhaps any other quality, we are defined by it. That’s why the elder generation always has (and always will) shake their heads at the music, language, and tools of the younger generations – because they are, in some ways, two different creatures, who speak a different language and live in a different world.
This course focuses on the truth that the way we process information has changed, and the way we communicate has changed. We often are misunderstood due to new technology and our choice of communication.
In this 4 hour session, we work from both sides of the spectrum, helping ‘boomers’ and ‘millennials’ (as well as the in-between generations we refer to as ‘translators’) to understand what the other is *really* saying, and how to communicate the messages we really want to send.
We also spend time understanding our own personal communication styles, and understanding how to use that information to adapt to the styles of our teams.
We have a unique opportunity, to stand at either end of the massive change that we’ve undergone, and build a bridge – teaching the younger generation the skills that they haven’t had the chance to learn, and building more diverse, stronger teams that harness the strengths of both groups.
