Multi-Generational Workforce

Best and Worst Traits of Leaders

Imagine that you manage a department in a health care organization of your choosing. The organization recently merged with another, layoffs occurred, and departments are now being consolidated. Your department now has employees whose ages span four generations, three different cultural groups are represented, and conflict is brewing between them. The conflict is affecting performance, shift scheduling, and cooperation with other departments.

  • Assess the situation that your department is facing.
  • Create clear and reasonable expectations and goals to achieve cohesion, cooperation, and communication in your department.
