Friday, August 14

This round table discussion begins with the characteristics that define Traditionalist, Baby Boomer, Generation X, and Millennial generations and determining which generation fits you best. Participants will transition into referring to their companies and themselves by generation in an attempt to understand many of the nuances deeply ingrained in behavior.
We will discuss generational effects on fire department turnover and techniques to keep our firefighters interested in a full career of firefighting. Our discussion concludes with methodologies to gain the most out of ourselves and our companies while respecting our differences.
Class participation is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.
The participant will demonstrate an understanding of generational differences and apply them in discussion of how to reach goals while respecting differences.
