Tennessee Presentation

This was a great group of people. I am not sure if they were full (after dinner), tired, or too hot, but there were no questions at the end. Afterwards I did have a few people talk with me individually. One person asked me about my approach, so I shall explain it here.

I started with defining the different generations, and I settled with Lancaster and Stillman’s (2002). I then looked at stereotypical beliefs and biases about the generations.

Developmental theory suggests that events during our formative high school years shape our world views, expectations, and behaviors as adults. Therefore, I researched major events that may have had an influence during each generations high school years.

Finally, I used common team building strategies as tips for how to work with people across the various generations.

Combinations of the generations are possible depending on the age of the parents and the situation in which the child was raised.

Unfortunately, I have no photos of my presentation at the Tennessee HiA Conference, but the campus was beautiful.
