Understanding and Engaging Gen Z in the Workplace
Gen Z (b. 1996-2010) is now entering the workforce and brings with them unique skills, needs, and expectations. This seminar provides valuable insights into the key trends that have influenced this generation. It discusses generational strengths and differences, values and perspectives, and key strategies for engaging and motivating our youngest employees! This is an essential workshop for every workplace looking to hire and retain the next generation.
The Coach Approach to Leadership
Respect and trust today are not earned through titles, positions, or experience, but rather thru relationship. Leaders who want to be effective must engage a relational leadership approach. Young team members need guidance and direction, but engage best when leaders come alongside them as a coach. In this session, we will consider and practice key coaching strategies for leaders that build trust, improve communication, and facilitate growth in team members.
Building a Team
(The Kind People Don't Want to Leave!)
We have all been there...doing something we love, but feeling miserable with the relationships and team dynamics around us. This presentation discusses the foundation of a healthy team, as well as the natural stages of development on any team. How does a leader navigate these factors and develop a team that not only enjoys working together, but makes things happen? This session will discuss practical strategies for any team context.
Leading and Working on Multigenerational Teams
Despite their great potential, multigenerational teams can also produce frustration as differing values, work habits, and expectations collide. Many Boomers (b. 1946-1964) are retiring and Millennials (b. 1980-1995) now represent a majority of the workforce. Gen Z (b. 1996-2012) is just beginning to enter the workplace. All generations bring with them unique skills, perspectives, and needs. This seminar provides insights into key generational traits, and presents information to help team members understand one another, and strategies for leaders to retain and empower employees of all ages!
Inspiring Innovation with Design Thinking
As we consider engaging and equipping a new generation of employees and leaders, we must be willing to innovate and model learning and growth in a complex and rapidly changing world. This seminar discusses key principles to innovation and presents design thinking as an effective and collaborative approach to supporting greater innovation in teams and organizations.
