Bridging the Gap:  When Generations Collide
Bridging the Gap:  When Generations Collide
  • Is your company struggling to successfully meld multiple generations into a cohesive team and culture? With multiple generations working together as part of a team within organizations today, the potential for misunderstanding and disharmony is high. Each generation brings their unique perspectives, work styles and ideas to an already complex cultural ecosystem. The result can be catastrophic or constructive, depending on how your organization chooses to manage the confluence of differences.
  • In Bridging the Gap age stereotypes will be dispelled as participants learn the effect generational “reference points” have had on shaping the values, attitudes and behavior in themselves and others on their team. This program will cultivate an environment of respect and understanding that will empower employees to embrace differences and see them as rich resources for promoting greatness as a team rather than a reason for conflict and disharmony.

Unearthing Inner Motivation
Unearthing Inner Motivation
  • We all have specific things that motivate and energize us to move toward our goals. Traditionally, it has been the job of management to externally motivate their teams. The Alignment Partnership philosophy is that the greatest motivation for anyone comes from within and is the direct result of aligning that “fit” of RIGHT role and RIGHT responsibilities that energizes each employee in making the RIGHT contributions and makes them feel valued as they work within their true nature.
  • Those participating in Unearthing Inner Motivation will learn the basic principles of motivation and come to understand how exploration and revelation, combined with effective communication, can unearth the strengths and true natures of the workforce to ignite their inner motivation. Once you know how each individual can best “fit” within your organization, you can align their strengths with the RIGHT responsibilities to cultivate an internal drive for success.
  • The inner motivation that comes from a workforce that knows they’re making the RIGHT contributions and feeling valued is powerful and sustaining! It may be a new way of thinking about motivation, but it’s a successful strategy that has born fruit every time it’s tried. A happy, satisfied workforce who is given the RIGHT role with the RIGHT responsibilities will bring a positive Return On Alignment – EVERY TIME!
