Learning Professionalism In Multi-Generational Workplaces

professionalism multi-generational workplaceProfessionalism in the workplace is an ever-evolving concept, one that has changed remarkably over the past thirty years. With a number of varying perspectives and values colliding, it’s our job at the Commission to ensure that it isn’t kept on the back burner.

Next week, two members of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism, Michelle Silverthorn – Diversity and Education Director and Mark Palmer – Professionalism Counsel – will be speaking to law students at Northern Illinois University College of Law on how to effectively approach this new environment in the workplace.

Silverthorn and Palmer will be providing students with insight into the different perspectives each generation brings to the table in an office setting and how those points of view impact the perception of professionalism as a whole.

Aside from presenting just the facts, the program will allow the students to walk through a number of hypothetical scenarios that they will likely face as professionals, providing these students with practical communication skills that they can use in their present and future workplaces.

Highlights of the materials presented next week will reflect some of the information that lies at the heart of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism’s new online, interactive course on Multi-Generational Communication, scheduled to make its debut this year.

The upcoming program takes place on Wednesday, February 24th with multiple classes being taught throughout the day.
