Leadership Seminar set for Friday
L’ANSE — The Baraga Chamber of Commerce presents a Leadership Seminar: Leading a Multi-Generational Workforce from noon-4 p.m. Friday at the Baraga Lakeside Inn.
Registration is $20 for a Baraga chamber member, $30 for a non-member.
With three generations firmly represented in the workforce, and a fourth knocking on doors, it is incumbent upon leaders to learn how to adapt to a changing landscape. As leaders, the role is to maximize the potential of every team member. To do that, all need to understand what makes them tick.
In this highly interactive workshop, participants will learn: How each generation’s experiences influenced their views and behaviors; what motivates employees of each generation; why mindsets around age impact productivity; when to step in to build team cohesiveness; and how Gen Z will rock the world.
Presenter Kathy Grinsteiner has worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield/Blue Care Network for 34 years, and currently serves as a provider relations manager. Previous roles include training and quality manager, claims manager, and employee/labor relations senior representative. Kathy led the development and implementation of an in-house trainer development program, as well as a frontline leader development program which she continues to lead today.
