Generations in the Workplace

Join us on May 14th as we explore creating an inclusive, high-performance culture where every generation feels welcome.

Is your culture friendly to ALL? Is it truly inclusive? Join Donna Brighton, Katherine Jeffery, PhD and Tim Kuppler at this downtown Chicago workshop for a fresh perspective on multiple generations in the workplace.

We all know culture matters, and the American workplace is evolving in such a way that multiple generations now need to work together on a deeper level than ever before. Each generation tackles problem-solving in different ways – which can lead to friction, confusion and frustration. We believe each generation has unique gifts to offer, and that building a culture which fosters collaboration across generations leads to a stronger team, and maximum potential.

This workshop will take you on a Culture Journey Learning Experience that dives into key concepts surrounding multiple generations in your organization, offering tips for maximizing the gifts each generation brings and creating an inclusive culture. You will walk away with insights, applicable ideas and actionable steps on how to combat Ageism and overcome Generational Bias.

How are you preparing your workplace to be even more appealing to those you are working so hard to recruit?

Is your culture friendly to ALL? Is it really inclusive?  You can measure, understand the current state and make adjustments!

Is your workplace enabling the highest level of performance? Connect your culture to strategy and unite your organization to accelerate results.

  • Get the facts on generational bias and how it’s detrimental to workplace productivity
  • Explore the gifts of each generation and how to create a generation-friendly workplace

What is the Culture Journey Learning Experience?

Presented by:



Organizational culture and its impact on individuals, organizations, and even society are constant subjects of interest. Culture is finally a part of leadership team discussions at most organizations. Unfortunately, few truly understand it despite most CEOs reporting culture as being critical to business success.

A new learning approach is needed to help leaders and change agents understand the complexities of culture, leadership, and the connection to performance improvement in an accelerated environment. The Culture Journey Learning Experience was recently created to combine peer learning with targeted education based on facts and fundamentals about culture, climate, and change management that are not widely understood. Human Synergistics and Root collaborated to develop this experience, facilitated in tables of 6 to 10 with a visual Root Learning Map®, reflection questions, scenarios, and a workbook.

Culture Journey Learning Experience Goals and Content:

  • Share key learnings, experiences, and culture-related concepts to understand and appreciate the complexity and unique culture perspectives of peers and experts.
  • Build a common language for understanding the layers of culture.
  • Discover how culture evolves and identify paths that increase the likelihood of shared learning and positive results with any major change effort.
  • Identify causal factors (systems, structures, etc.) that are part of the work climate and understand how they reinforce the current culture and may be levers for change in improvement plans.
  • Apply learnings at each step of the workshop to your own organization or organizations with which you work.
  • Receive a workbook with discussion and reflection questions so you can apply key workshop learnings with colleagues at your organization after the event.

Join us on May 14th to learn how to overcome generational bias, build an inclusive culture and sustainably improve YOUR results.

Every attendee will receive a BONUS gift bag:

  • The Flourishing Workplace – a brand new book that captures the three essentials for an inclusive culture
  • Catalyst Question Cards – a deck of cards with questions designed to increase your asking to telling ratio and improve your leadership effectiveness
  • The Serving Leader – Custom Chicago edition of the global #1 selling book on serving leadership
