The Generations and Type


1 day

Every generation forms a collective group that shares the same cultural experiences, a similar societal history, the same technology, and a shared attitude toward and reaction against the generation that came before it. These generational connections are powerful lenses for better understanding ourselves and each other. We now have four generations communicating, living and working with each other — Gen Y, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and Traditionalists — with unique outlooks, world views, motives and behavioral styles. This workshop utilizes Jungian-Myers Briggs type theory as a tool to bridge the gaps the different generations may find separating them.

This one-day experiential workshop is designed to help the four groups to understand each other. Learn how to use type and temperament to help bridge the gaps that develop between the generations in the workplace. This class is a fun and fast-paced workshop that merges type with generational theory.


Workshop Objectives:

  • Explore video, news events, music and advertising that contributed to the identity of each generational group
  • Explore how personality type and temperament influence the patterns of behavior in each generation.
  • Experience exercises that use type to facilitate and promote cross-generational communication and understanding.
  • Create an action plan for applying this understanding in the workplace.
