July FPA DEI Learning Series: Bridging the Gap of Intergenerational Communication
In this session, we’ll discuss the challenge and opportunity as multiple generations work alongside each other. This is likely the first time in history that we could have up to 4 distinct generations working alongside one another. What does this mean for you and your firm and how might you manage the communication gap that occurs? We’ll address issues such as how we manage expectations, leverage the strengths of each generation,and how following stereotypes gets you and your team into trouble. We’ll also talk about the opportunity for career paths that will maximize the next generation of planners.
- Why bridging the gap is important?
- How our generational tendencies impact our communication
- How 5 key skills will help reduce generationalbarriers
- How to maximize generational opportunity with NexGen Advisors and clients
- Applying what we’ve learned
