"When Generations Connect"

Hannah Ubl
BridgeWorks

Research Director | Keynote Speaker | Consultant


 

Four distinct generations are working together shoulder to shoulder, each with a unique set of attitudes, values and work styles. It used to be that older workers were bosses and younger ones took orders. Now, roles are all over the map and rules are being rewritten. Organizations are feeling the pain of generations as they struggle to manage productivity and morale while maintaining high standards of quality and service in a challenging economy. This program will give you the tools to convert this form of diversity from an obstacle into an opportunity.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explain who the generations are in today’s workplace
  • Identify the stereotypes that keep us from understanding other generations
  • Present solutions for engagement, team synergy, and motivation for all generations
  • Help you develop approaches for communicating across generational divides
  • Identify key trends of the future of the workplace

At her core, Hannah is an information junkie. She delights in bringing that information to the masses. As a researcher, speaker, generational expert, and coauthor of Managing Millennials For Dummies, Hannah thrives on studying what motivates, forms, and challenges every generation.

She has delivered her dynamic presentations in companies such as Cisco Systems, Adidas, Ralph Lauren, UnitedHealth Group, and Deloitte. Hannah is driven by the “a-ha” moments during speeches when audience members who seemed reticent at first can be seen nodding and smiling in appreciation.

An exceptionally curious person with an insatiable thirst to learn anything and everything, Hannah heads up BridgeWorks’ research initiatives, including delving into the latest trends on Generation Edge, the generation after Millennials. She is passionate about BridgeWorks’ gender, healthcare, and sustainability initiatives. Her research has unearthed valuable tips and actionable solutions for multi-generational workplaces and key strategies for marketing and reaching more generationally diverse client bases.
