Leading Xers and Boomers
Millennials now represent a majority of the workforce. Many of them are now assuming leadership roles in teams and organizations. In many cases, they are managing individuals both older and younger, as Generation Z enters the workforce. This workshop presents some key considerations and practical strategies for Millennial leaders who are working with Gen X and Boomers, and preparing to manage Gen Z.
Millennials and Gen Z: Ethical Leadership
For many young people, doctrines such as relativism and tolerance, in which they have been educated, have given them a different list of priorities than older generations. These doctrines present truth as doing what seems right in specific contexts and respecting the truths of others as valid, even if they differ from one’s own. An increased emphasis on being part of a community and team, being viewed as respectful and accepting of others, and avoiding offending or disappointing, often results in fluid ethical standards. Does the definition of ethics need to be reexamined in light of new philosophies and changing worldviews? How should ethics be defined for a new generation of leaders?
Millennials and the Church: Exploring Current Cultural Trends, Values, and Views
As the first generation of postmodern natives, Millennials have ushered in new cultural norms in America. As a result, their views and values often differ drastically from older generations. God has divinely equipped and positioned you for this season in His Kingdom. This workshop provides an overview of current trends, generational worldviews and discussion on the critical role of young adults in the Church today!
A Daniel Generation: Redefining Leadership for a New Era
American culture is in upheaval as we transition from the modern age to what will follow. Young adults who are preparing for ministry leadership in the days ahead will face challenges and decisions unfamiliar to their teachers, mentors and pastors. Not unlike Daniel and his friends, who were godly leaders in Babylon after Judah was invaded and taken into exile, young adults today must prepare to be effective in new environments. What leadership lessons are most critical? What characteristics will be essential? How do we as young adults prepare effectively for successful leadership and ministry in the days ahead?
Essential Leadership Skills for Generation Z
Generation Z is one of the most empowered and connected generations in history. Many teenagers and college students use technology to run their own businesses, create amazing content, and connect with people globally. While they are a gifted cohort, some aspects of technology use, along with education and parenting trends, have hindered Gen Z learning in areas of emotional intelligence, face-to-face communication, time management, and problem solving. This workshop helps equip Gen Z to build those skills needed to maximize their unique strengths.
