JASON’S MOST REQUESTED KEYNOTE FOR EDUCATORS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND EDUCATION STAKEHOLDERS
CROSSING THE GENERATIONAL DIVIDE IN EDUCATION: Unlocking the Power of Generations™ to Best Serve Today’s Students
KEYNOTE AND SEMINAR
Four generations side-by-side in education. This was not supposed to happen. Now even the most experienced and celebrated educators are being challenged to adapt to meet all four generations in the workforce—and a new fifth generation: their students. Jason Dorsey has seen this challenge firsthand because he has worked on-site at over 700 schools and colleges around the world. This tremendous frontline exposure gives Jason unique insight into the cross-generational interactions that take place every day in education. Jason also has a personal connection to working with educators, because an educator changed his life.
In Crossing the Generational Divide in Education, Jason reveals exactly what you need to know about each generation. He then shares specific Generational Kinetics™ strategies and best practices that drive cross-generational performance in elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education. These ready-to-use ideas are designed to create immediate results at virtually no cost.
Your educators, administrators, and school stakeholders leave this results-driven program able to:
- Understand why and how a multigenerational workforce is an opportunity to better serve students
- Recognize the advantage created by integrating each generation’s strengths, differences, and life experience
- Implement frontline-tested best practices that quickly maximize each generation’s contribution in education
"You were the catalyst that got our school year off to a terrific start! There are very few speakers who can touch the emotions of our ‘seasoned’ and diverse convocation population–teachers, administrators, food service, custodial, grounds and maintenance workers, as well as bus drivers–but you know the formula! Finding a speaker who could bring a message that would be both new and inspirational to each of us was quite a tall order and one that you filled very successfully!"
Nancy Moore, Director of Curriculum and Instruction
Glen Rose Independent School District
“Jason's presentation provided the perfect amount of fact and laughter for the kickoff of our Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Conference.

Every group in higher education needs to hear what Jason Dorsey has to say!”
