Skill Development Workshop: Working Across Generations – When You are Younger or New to the Field (Friday, June 22, 10:45 am to noon; 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm; Saturday, June 23, 9:45 am to 11:15 am)
Explore strategies that work for those who are younger or new to the field and find themselves leading, managing or working on teams with people older and more experienced than themselves. In a discussion led by presenters spanning four decades, we examine our own perceptions of age, how we can look at age differently, and how we can give performance feedback to someone of a different age/cultural background from ourselves. Participants will work in pairs and small groups and view a short video on perceptions of aging.
