Developing Future Leaders Managing the EPIC Generation


Course introduction

This generation of leaders are unique in the sense that we have up to 4 generations of workers co-existing at the same time in the workforce. Each generation of workforce comes with its unique tribal knowledge and life experiences, and especially the millennials – they are unlike any workforce we have seen in the past!

The management, leadership and relationships across these 4 generations poses unique challenges that has been much discussed and debated as each generation struggles to understand and adapt to each other.
