The Strategy Summit theme is: Bridging the Generational Gap – Creating High Performing Teams. Leaders are increasingly grappling with bridging performance gaps in their work forces. Problems arise from differing mindsets and communication styles. The friction is often aggravated by new technology and work patterns that mixes workers of different ages and behavioral competencies. As such managing top performance at senior management is a top-of-mind strategic issue for CEOs. The Strategy Summit 2014 will focus exclusively on this little-understood subject: Bridging the gap – creating authentic teams from diverse teams for high performance at work. Participants will be exposed to the latest thinking and research, and will understand the do’s and don’ts of engaging their talent across generations.
