About the Program

The younger generations have grown up with cell phones, laptops, internet access, and, as a result know how to participate in a highly socially-networked world. They tend to be move seamlessly between jobs while our older generations tended to allow employers to define their career. These differences tend to cause conflict in the workplace as all the generations work to find their place and get the job done. So, how do we as project managers engage, motivate, and lead across generations? The answers might surprise you.

In this presentation we will first review studies of worker motivation that have been conducted for decades and then use those findings to consider ideas to truly understand, motivate, and create a truly productive project environment. We’ll discuss how to apply servant leadership principles to embrace all workers, help them grow, and exploit their values and talents. Finally, we’ll explain a modern-day management model called Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) that is under experiment by employers such as Best Buy, GAP, and even the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
