Olivia McIvor


with Olivia McIvor, author, human resources expert, and international keynote speaker.


Why can’t we all just get along?

Loyalty, work ethic, technology, respect – these words mean very different things depending on your age. One generation considers the other entitled and lacking work ethic, while the so-called young and entitled see older generations as has-beens and luddites. What is the impact when these conflicting belief systems and perceptions meet in the workplace?

According to Olivia McIvor, each generation does have different work styles and beliefs that, more often than not, are challenging to reconcile. However, she asks: what do we lose when we allow the different approaches to create workplace silos that prevent effective knowledge transfer? Can we create space for the different approaches? In fact, can we use our differences to enhance workplace conversations and problem solving, and, if so, how? Join us in November for an engaging conversation that will reimagine the generational clash as a tool to improve the modern workplace.
