Anna Liotta: How Current Events Impact Our Generations • Knowledgelink

Crowded house growing up? Think again. Generational speaker and author Anna Liotta is one of nineteen children! Clearly, she was born into the fire of inter-generational dynamics. Anna converses with Jon about some of the data in her latest book Unlocking Generational Codes: a guide on the distinctive behaviors of each generation in the workplace. Each generation has their preferences in work and leadership style, priorities, life fulfillment, and communication habits. In the office, these distinctive behaviors have the potential to clash. In this episode, Anna breaks down when and why these behaviors occur, and how current events affect how generations approach issues. And most importantly, how to effectively utilize the strengths of people from differing generations.
