Speaker on Leadership and Generational Issues

 About

Anna Liotta, Founder of The Generational Institute and author of Unlocking Generational CODES, is an award-winning keynote speaker and consultant.

Growing up the youngest girl of 19 children, in a household of six generations, gave Anna a front-row, insider's view into generational communication challenges. This unique upbringing along with a Master's degree in Interpersonal Communication and over 15 years as a consultant, coach, speaker and author led Anna to develop her interdisciplinary approach into what makes the generations tick and what ticks them off.

Using crucial elements of communications, sociology, business, psychology and demography Anna provides strategies for how to:

  • Reduce generational conflict, confusion and costly missteps
  • Decrease Millennial talent turnover and lost productivity
  • Avoid communication pitfalls when selling across generations
  • Overcome differences in how each generation defines customer service
  • Transform generational obstacles into opportunities
  • Lead, mentor, sell and serve across generations

A Certified Speaking Professional and adjunct faculty member in the University of Washington's Executive MBA program, Anna also serves as the chair of the institutional advancement committee on the board of trustees at Antioch University.

As the multi-generational talent pool intensifies it becomes more difficult to keep up with what keeps employees and customers engaged. Anna helps her clients and audiences to effectively acquire and retain clients and talent by understanding the motivations, perspectives and aspirations of each generation.

Anna Liotta has a deep understanding of how generational dynamics are affecting business success. She has worked with successful companies such as Microsoft, Merrill Lynch, Amazon, the PGA and NBA and been consulted as an expert by ESPN, FOX News, the BBC, NPR, PBS and the New York Post.
