In today’s diverse workplace, generational differences can lead to misunderstandings, communication breakdowns, and decreased productivity. Each generation brings its own set of values, perspectives, and strengths, but without the right tools and understanding, these differences can become barriers rather than assets.

It is time to overcome these generational biases!

This presentation brings a realistic perspective on bridging the generational divide to foster teams that are not only stronger and more united, but also immensely powerful. With insights, stories, and humor, Generations Expert Karen McCullough champions a workplace where generations synergize, not just coexist, charting a path of collective growth and strength.


  • Exploring the attributes and perspectives of Boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and Gen Z
  • Discussing three possible areas of conflict and some strategies to help them
  • Understanding the mindset and strengths of each generation
  • Identifying the 5 intergenerational communication obstacles

Gen Z has entered the workforce and possibly your workplace. Don’t be fooled. It would be easy to assume that GenZ are just younger versions of Millennials; they are not!

Generation Z grew up in a starkly different sociological/historical time than Millennials, giving them a distinct view on life and the world. What worked to motivate and inspire Millennials may not work for Gen Z. This generation has its own perspective and approach to learning, communication, social issues, culture, finances, and motivation. Generation Z has new strengths, weaknesses, needs, and wants.

In this interactive session, you will discover how best to connect, engage, and lead this unprecedented generation.


  • Understand Gen Z and learn how they’ll impact your workforce
  • Discuss the concept of Quiet Quitting and workplace boundaries and engagement
  • Learn how to leverage your own generational strengths to lead this generation

“Our colleagues thoroughly enjoyed her presentation and sense of humor. Her style was exactly what we needed during this difficult time.”

“The customer comments have been pouring in. We held our bi-annual distributor’s meeting with customers representing more than 30 countries in attendance. Karen’s presentation on working in and selling to a multi-generational society was outstanding. Karen really took the time to do her homework and understand our 130 year old industry. She kept the energy level high and interactive. Within days after the event I had co-workers and customers tell me that they had already applied the information they took away from Karen’s presentation. They were able to relate generational differences to both their work and personal lives. Karen was gracious enough to share her PowerPoint presentation so that I could send it out to the many that requested a copy. Good communication is the key to success and Karen helped us understand how to best give and receive communication!”
