as a workplace trends
researcher has made her one of North America's leading experts on
retention and culture. She assisted Dr. John Izzo in his research
for the TV production and book, "the Five Secrets You Must
Discover Before You Die", as well she was instrumental in the
creation of The Generational Card Series- a four card
series that assists leaders in understanding the four generations in
the work place today. Olivia has developed a program
titled "Four Generations-One Workplace" based on the
book "Values Shift:
Recruiting, Retaining and Engaging the
Multigenerational Workforce" by Dr. John Izzo. This
half-day or full day program is geared to teach managers and leaders
about the four generations sharing the workplace today. What each
generation needs from the workplace and what they don't. What each
generation wants and to some extent expects from the workplace but
also she explores the generation's strengths, skills, communications
styles and valuable offerings. This program is being taught in
healthcare, the power and utilities industry, hotel and hospitality
as well as telecommunication and technology. With the ongoing
struggle to retain the younger generations while simultaneously
retaining the wealth of knowledge from the boomer and pre-boomer
generations, Ms. McIvor's programs are not only timely they are well
researched, practical and have given many corporations and
organizations knowledge and tools that assisted them in planning
for the labour shortages facing us today. Ms. McIvor also along with
Dr. Izzo developed the program
"People Centered Leadership" a training program
designed to teach leaders how to coach and mentor. Last year Ms.
McIvor's first book was released
Business of Kindness: creating workplaces where people thrive."
a book that discusses the incidence of bullying in the
workplace and how to foster a more tolerant work culture. This book
is an informative read full of relevant up to date statistics that allows the
