People are living and working longer resulting in larger age differences between individuals and groups that interact in the workplace and elsewhere. The way that we communicate and the values that motivate us may be greatly influenced by when we were born. Understanding how these values and methods of communications differ between generations is a critical factor in achieving more effective communications and interactions.
Sherri Petro, featured speaker at the Friday, April 24th meeting of the Coronado Roundtable, is an expert facilitator who has presented hundreds of seminars on management, generational communications, teamwork and leadership. She is President of VPI Strategies, a San Diego-based consulting firm and she has published dozens of articles on these subjects. She has taught and coached hundreds of executives how to improve cross-generational communication and her clients have included Fortune 500 companies and state and local government agencies. She is the most popular blogger on “Managing Americans”, a leadership training website with over 330,000 followers.
Ms. Petro graduated magna cum laude with a BA degree in Psychology from Youngstown State University and earned an MBA from Pepperdine University.
