Intergenerational Panel: How do you bring intergenerational wisdom to life in the workplace?
27 september om 19:30
Elders are critical in transmitting wisdom and knowledge while keeping the organisation humble and focused on its purpose.
They are its foundation, repository of values, and its memory.
They bring a different perspective of time and space to the workplace, operating at the pace of the soul and not the pace of the brain.
With more and more organisations now having four generations represented in the workplace, harnessing the wisdom that elders can bring to intergenerational collaboration and co-creation is an essential and courageous conversation for organisations and communities to have.
