March Monthly Program

Forget the Generational Divide!
Build Passion-Driven Cohorts

Search "Generations at Work" on Amazon, and you will find over 31,000 titles on the topic, but what we know about the traditional, American-oriented definition of generations is changing. Technology, social media and complexity are actually uniting generations through passion-oriented cohorts (cohort: a group of subjects who have shared a particular event together during a particular time span). Companies that want to thrive in the future will help employees match their passions to find their "calling" instead of a "career." This will result in better retention, teamwork and organizational results.

Yvette's presentation is part TED talk and part crystal ball as she enlightens us on the workforce of the future. She will share her research on the new concept where open-source talent sharing will be so common that there will be, in effect, a "People Cloud" in which work is shared, collaboration across the globe is instantaneous and "cloud" employees work for multiple enterprises simultaneously. 

Yvette will describe how we in the Learning & Development industry can teach employees to be effective in this new environment and leverage their potential through knowledge sharing and collaborative/social learning. Ultimately, she'll teach us how to transform our organizations by helping them understand the workforce of the future while meeting the learning needs of those employees in the generations to come!

You will learn how the:

  • Concept of "generations" is shifting and ways to capitalize on this change.

  • Convergence of technology will create a "People Cloud," re-framing traditional ideas of work.
