PFS 829 Communicating Across Workplace Generations
This course explores the dimensions of the popular "generations" framing of age-related diversity in the modern workplace. This course will unpack and challenge the concept of "generations" and its implications for workplace cultures, policies, leadership and career development practices. Course will explore different types of generations that emerge within organizations related to factors like workplace cohort, team dynamics and individual lifestage. Organizational communication assumptions, patterns and practices will be centered as a factor in shaping the individual experiences of these generational members, with the goal of identifying new strategies for stimulating meaningful, productive cross-generational working relationships, mentoring and collaboration across organizations.
