December 8, 2017 - ASBOA Professional Learning Day

We are pleased to offer our 3rd module from Fierce Conversations.  Today's workshop will focus on the GENERATIONS module.

Leveraging the advantages of a multigenerational workforce begins when leaders focus on similarities, respect differences, and draw on strengths.

Long-term organizational success requires two things: transfer of existing knowledge from one generation to the next and embracing new knowledge entering the organization. The key is to create a culture where employees are equally comfortable teaching and learning from each other.

With business changing at an increasingly rapid pace, the generations have a unique opportunity to create new ways of doing business together by actively seeking out diverse viewpoints and incorporating drive, knowledge, and ideas from every age group.


  • create high-potential employees from any generational group
  • recognize the dangers of pigeonholing people due to generational stereotypes
  • explore what motivates the individual generations
  • leverage divers perspectives when moving past a roadblock, vetting an opportunity, or seeking new solutions

A block of rooms have been set aside for the events.  Cut off date is November 13th. Reservations are the responsibility of the individual and can be made by contacting the reservation department by phone or by on the web and identifying yourself as being with the 2017 ASBOA Issues Forum.
