Quarterly Training

Learn about the different generations that make up your workforce and team. Find out what makes each generation unique, how they prefer to communicate, get work done, their triggers for excellent performance, and their triggers for conflict. From the Millennials to Generation X to the Baby Boomers to the Heritage Generation, each group has very specific interests. You’ll find out which generations value optimism, which are self-reliant and which are team-oriented, which break the rules and which value the rules, and which favor formality and structure and which prefer informality.

In this eye-opening training, you’ll hear first-hand from each generation on your team what they truly value. And together we’ll look at some of the surprising trends that are occurring with each generation. You’ll learn how to most effectively work together by using each generation’s uniqueness to cover all the bases and helping everyone on the team give their best.

And you’ll see your customers in a whole new light as you find out how best to sell generationally and what kind of customer service is most effective.

We know you’re passionate about people more deeply understanding themselves, others on their team and their customers. And you know that leveraging that awareness to make deep, strong connections facilitates collaboration and sustained success. Generations Collaboration helps people notice each other in a whole new way. And these insights gained give everyone a new way to relate and work together more effectively. By seeing each generation as bringing a unique gift to the table, you’ll set the stage for true collaboration on your team.

Here are some potential topics we address in Generations Collaboration:

  • Meet the Millennials: Your Gen Y Work Force
  • Generation X: Making Managers and More
  • The Baby Boomers: What Matters More than Money
  • The Heritage Generation: It’s Lonely at the Top
  • Generational Selling: What Do Your Customers Want?

Practical and Applicable
At Quixote, we know how important it is for any new training knowledge to be practical and applicable. That's why we put such great emphasis on immediate and realistic application. Participants leave with a plan in place for employing their new skills in the coming week and beyond.

Energetic and Fun
We also know that people respond best to presentations that are energetic, interactive and fun. There is always laughter in the session. And the unique methodologies we employ definitely help - we've used the modalities of chocolate and even wine pairing to explore the workshop content. Any of our fun team building programs can be easily combined with this workshop to create that magical mix of meaningful fun.

Best of the Best
Our research team gathers the latest management and leadership research and sifts through that impressive collection of knowledge and wisdom. We then distill what we've found down into what is most important, memorable and applicable to you and your team. In short, we do the work so your people can benefit the most.

Lasting Impact
Participants walk away from the session with practical tools that can be immediately applied to their individual work situations, as well as a vision of the powerful productivity possible in a team that recognizes and leverages all team members' strengths. We stretch our time together (and your training dollars) by including (optional) pre-workshop assignments, post-event success tools and coaching.

We customize key components of the workshop to ensure that you get the right material to the right people at the right time, maximizing the return on your investment. We take into account your unique team situation and your desired outcomes.
