Understanding and Engaging Millennials & Gen Z
An essential workshop for every organization that works with and employees young adults, this workshop provides an overview of the core characteristics, needs and desires of the Millennial (b. 1980-1995) generation, and a look ahead at Gen Z (b. 1996-2012). This program provides valuable insights into the key trends that have influenced each generation. Attendees will gain an understanding of generational strengths and differences, values and perspectives, and key strategies for navigating generational differences effectively!
Leading and Managing Multigenerational Teams
Despite their great potential, multigenerational teams can also produce frustration as differing worldviews, work habits, and expectations collide. As many Boomers are retiring (b. 1946-1964), Millennials (b. 1980-1995) now represent a majority of the workforce and Gen Z (b. 1996-2012) is just beginning to enter the workplace. These generations bring with them unique skills, perspectives, and needs. If not understood, these differences can result in low satisfaction and retention. This program provides valuable insights into generational expectations, and presents strategic tools to help leaders and managers retain and empower team members of all ages!
