With three generations in the modern workplace, the days of “one size fits all” and “treat everyone the same” are gone. Many leaders are finding traditional management philosophies ineffective when working with younger members of their teams. Keeping and growing great people is the backbone of any organization, but what can you do when a new generation of people has unfamiliar values and working styles?
And with the cost of replacing even a young professional of between $15,000 and $25,000, losing talent is a mistake businesses can’t afford to keep making.
This high-energy session will help delegates leave stereotypes behind by discussing the attributes, values, and styles of each generation – Boomers, Generation X, and Millenials –and make practical, realistic suggestions about how to manage and coach them. It will show you how to lead adaptively and to grow your leadership skills to manage the evolving demands of the workforce.
