Stop Acting Your Age!

Matt Havens
Generational Keynote


If you've listened to any other discussion about generational issues at work, then you've undoubtedly been told there are four distinct generations operating side-by-side in today's working world. You've then been told the differences between those four generations, and then you've been told (although probably not in these exact words) that you need to just deal with all these different people, because they're not going away and they're not going to change how they operate. If that advice suits you, fantastic.

However, if you've ever been frustrated by how impossible it seems to employ four different strategies to manage four distinct generations, and if you've ever felt like you're the only one who's being asked to make any changes, then Stop Acting Your Age! is exactly what you need.  Because it turns out that there really aren't four generations. In this hysterical keynote, you'll learn a simpler way of looking at your own generational picture, and you'll also learn how to understand, recognize, and resolve every generational issue facing today's workforce.  That's no exaggeration; by the end of Stop Acting Your Age!, you and your colleagues will walk away with all of the knowledge you'll need to address 100% of the generational issues you'll face for the rest of your career.  Other generational presentations focus on what people want, but Stop Acting Your Age! will tell you why everyone wants the different things they do.  It's an important distinction, and it will make implementing new solutions easier than you ever thought possible.

So get ready to laugh more and learn more than you ever thought possible.  Because improving your generational issues doesn't have to be boring.
