Plan Your Day at the Southwest Builders Show


$85* - Exclusive HBACA member event!

The Purchasing Agents, Suppliers and Subcontractors (P.A.S.S.) Breakfast is the Southwest Builders Show’s premier business development event. Kick-start your day at a networking reception featuring Dr. Diane Hamilton, followed by breakfast with the Valley’s leading builders whose purchasing agents and other executives will be serving as “table hosts”! This event is for HBACA members only.

Dr. Diane Hamilton will present "Embracing Multiple Generations in the Workplace"

One of the biggest challenges in the modern workplace is there are more generations working together than in the past. Employees must learn to recognize and embrace that everyone has unique perspectives, skills, and motivations based on his or her experience and generation. Dr. Diane Hamilton’s presentation will help participants learn about important skills required to work together harmoniously while embracing individual differences. Some of the key takeaways include:

  • How to embrace each generation as unique and important.
  • How to work harmoniously together by improving key emotional intelligence skills including interpersonal relationships and empathy.
  • How to improve engagement and productivity through appreciating the value of each generation’s perspective.
  • How to overcome diversity-related challenges to reduce conflict and improve performance.

Dr. Diane Hamilton will use interactive techniques to involve the audience so that they fully appreciate different generational perspectives, which will help improve empathy and cooperation. Participants will discover how having more generations working together provides more opportunities than challenges. By developing a clearer understanding of everyone’s role in reaching overall goals, each employee can improve their emotional commitment to their job and their organization.
