Learning Across Generations

Raymond Thomas

Co-Founder of Enible

Founder of The Leadership Paradigm

As facilitators, trainers or educators, one of the most common challenges of today is to connect with audiences of a different generation, be it with the Boomers, Gen-X, or Millennials. Understanding where each generation is coming from and their preferences are key to successfully creating a learning environment designed specifically for them.

These generation gaps opens an opportunity for the facilitators to become more flexible and formulate specific techniques to cater to certain audiences.    

How can we engage an audience of a different generation than us? How do we adapt ourselves to facilitate learning for across the generations?
