“The class gives a fun overview of generational changes while pointing out the generational cycle: each generation feels the same about the next generation as the generation before them felt about them.”
–Rebecca Rizzutto, Education Outreach Program Manager
“It’s interesting to see some of the things talked about across the various generations that were influences or differences for some of the older generations are circling back among the younger generations.”
–Angela Rovaris, DOTD External Training Director
Meet the instructor
There are currently no prerequisites or other requirements needed to enroll in “Managing Across Generations,” and one of LTRC’s newest employees, Marcus Sylvas, LTRC Leadership Development Program Manager, will be teaching the class. Sylvas joins LTRC from LSU’s Office of Human Resource Management, where he served as a talent acquisition specialist. Familiar with working alongside a wide range of individuals with different ages, job titles, and educational backgrounds, he is looking forward to guiding participants beyond generational perceptions and pushing them to engage in conversations with coworkers and family members about what they learn.
“I would like to continue to grow the great curriculum Dr. Wheat has built over the years. Based on my background, I have different perspectives and ideas that can bolster the materials and resources that are currently available,” Sylvas explained. “My experiences involve interacting with a lot of people from all over the world who have made me look at certain aspects of life differently. I hope to use those experiences to be relatable to my audience, to educate, and to challenge everyone to consider different perspectives and dig deeper within themselves.”
