Learn more about The Center's unusual take on generations at


He will be presenting:   " Crossing the Generational Divide: Unlocking the Power of GenerationsTM for Your Strategic Advantage

For the first time in world history, four distinctly different generations are working side by side. Each of  these four generations (Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Gen Y) is guided by a different set of values, beliefs, and expectations. In Crossing the Generational Divide, Curt entertainingly reveals each generation's preferences and priorities to highlight what they bring to the workforce-and how to build on their common ground. Curt then shares The Center for Generational Kinetic's frontline-tested process which participants can immediately rely on to lead a culture of cross-generation communication, innovation, engagement, teamwork, and performance. Filled with surprising statistics, step-by-step strategies, and laugh-out-loud stories, attendees leave this presentation prepared to make their multigenerational workforce a competitive advantage.
