Speaking Topics

Crossing the Generational Divide: Making the Four Generations in Your Workforce a Competitive Advantage In Any Economy
For the first time in US history, four distinctly different generations are working side by side. Each of these four generations (Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Generation Y) is guided by a different set of values, beliefs, and expectations. In Crossing the Generational Divide, bestselling author Jason Ryan Dorsey entertainingly reveals each generation's preferences and priorities to highlight what they bring to the workforce—and how to build on their common ground.

  • Recognize and understand the divergent values, preferences, and priorities of all four generations in the workforce.
  • Learn a step-by-step process for leading all four generations while respecting employees as individuals.
  • Impact your organization with actions and strategies that other leaders have successfully relied on to bridge the generations in their workplace.

Y-Size Your Business: How Gen Y Employees Can Save You Money and Grow Your Business
Generation Y is the fastest growing demographic in the United States workforce. Along with a new definition of "business casual," Gen Y adheres to a different set of workplace beliefs and priorities than other generations already employed. We also bring tremendous potential and big expectations (just ask, we'll tell you). Gen Y's attitude toward work can make us a growing challenge or a strategic opportunity depending entirely on how business leaders respond.

He also tailors his presentation to focus on the aspects of the Gen Y employment life cycle most important to your organization:

  • Attracting and Hiring Gen Y
  • Onboarding and Engaging Gen Y
  • Motivating and Leading Gen Y
  • Developing and Professionalizing Gen Y
  • Retaining Gen Y
