A wave is coming…
By the year 2020, 45% of the American workforce will be Millennials (people born between 1980 to 2000). This younger generation is already having a significant impact on the work place, and experts say this will only increase in the next 5 years.
The number 1reason a Millennial stays with an organization is their direct leader. At the same time, the number one reason a Millennial leaves is also their direct leader. Leadership has always been important, but now it’s crucial. The critical difference in recruitment, engagement and retention is not just in who you hire… but more in who you promote into leadership and how you train those individuals to lead this Next Generation Work Force.
“Generation Gap 2.0″
This workshop introduces three foundational principles that will exponentially increase generational understanding in a fraction of the time. Next, participants will be introduced to profiles of each of the different generations in the workforce. As a result, leaders will have a deeper awareness of how each generation was shaped. This enables participants to understand and navigate key differences like work ethic, use of time and engagement. Finally, participants are introduced to four powerful leadership tools that will be immediately implementable. These tools unlock strategies that dramatically improve engagement, performance and retention of all generations in your workforce.
“The Mentor Manager”
Millennials have been brought up with high-levels of encouragement and mentoring by their parents, their teachers and their coaches. So they not only expect it, they need it. Plus, every generation thrives when they are mentored more effectively. The question is… how can a leader be both a manager and a mentor?
This highly-interactive workshop builds on the principles participants learn in the Generation Gap 2.0. In this session, leaders will be introduced to and practice with specific mentoring strategies that are immediately implementable to promote more engagement, loyalty and retention.
Participants will also be given specific guidance on when to take off their “Mentor Hat” and lead with specific and clear direction to insure excellence.
“The Elite Mentor Manager”
This workshop takes the concepts introduced in the Mentor Manager to the next level. Participants will be introduced to the Scientific Method Mentor Model™. This model has helped organizations to better mentor and lead employees, and it has also functioned to increase innovative thinking, performance and loyalty.
