Date: Friday May 11th, 2018
Time: 8:30 - 10:00 A.M
(30 minute networking before and after)

PLEASE NOTE: This session will be presented via webinar only and we will be meeting to watch together in person at Schneider Electric, 200 N. Martingale Road, Schaumburg, IL 60173. A light continental breakfast will be served.

In this interactive and informative discussion, The Kaleidoscope Group's Mitch Brown and Kevin Murphy will educate participants on the nuance of each generation, misconceptions in how we view others, and how we can all be generationally agile in today's workplace and our day to day lives.

Concepts covered will include Diversity and Inclusion, Bias, Generational Difference and Skills to communicate and work better across the generations. Please come prepared to offer your leadership insights and discuss how we can all work better together!

Participants will leave the session with a post-event action plan toolkit, and greater insights into who they are, who their generational counterparts are, and tangible skills to operate effectively across generations and beyond.
