SEEC and Donohue Learning launch first-of-its-kind online program in multi-generational workplace management
Donohue Learning has launched Managing Across Generations for Stronger Teams, the first-of-its-kind online certificate program offered in partnership with Schulich Executive Education Centre (SEEC), Schulich School of Business, York University.
SEEC’s first video-on-demand learning program offers practical science-based education for managing generations that has been especially effective in helping Millennials learn to manage up and across generational cohorts.
“Understating how the different generations respond to technology and leadership is key in helping teams move forward, reduce stress and break down communication barriers in the workplace,” said Mary Donohue, PhD, CEO and Lead Researcher at Donohue Learning Technologies (DLT). It is estimated that almost 50 per cent of cost overruns in business projects are due to inefficient communication because the different generations process information differently, said Donohue.
Today’s work-world has a record four generational cohorts battling it out for supremacy. The consequent breakdown in communication is severely impacting productivity and job satisfaction. Workplace unhappiness and Millennial churn are hurting business.
The program was developed by SEEC and Donohue Learning in direct response to demand from businesses. “The challenges for many businesses are serious, and Mary’s insights provide a glimmer of hope in resolving them, based on her proprietary research, data and results to date with many large-scale organizations,” said Alan Middleton, SEEC Executive Director.
“We are thrilled that this is our first fully online and on-demand program, which complements the other great offerings we have at SEEC,” said Middleton.
The certificate program is now open for registration for individuals and organizations through SEEC’s website. Visit the Managing Across Generations for Stronger Teams program page to learn more.
