There is an ever-increasing buzz about the millennial generation and their potential impact on the world as we know it. This group of individuals, born after 1982, comes to the workplace with a rather unique set of life experiences and skills. As a group, they have been described as optimists, team players, accepting of authority, and rule followers. At the same time, they often present unique challenges because of their seemingly unending sense of entitlement, their unique perspectives on employment expectations, and their insistence of fully utilizing...24/7... the vast array of electronic devices that have always been a part of their lives.
This webinar is focused on equipping those of us who are not part of the millennial generation with a set of skills to maximize relationships and productivity. During this session, we will explore seven challenges and approaches to success:
1. Engaging the Millennial Culture
2. From Dependence to Accountability
3. The Entitlement Factor
4. Technology and Millennials: Deep or Wide?
5. Maximizing Team Play
6. Building Our Life Stories Together
7. Different Paths to the Same Destination
Join us for a lively time of engagement as we unwrap the mysteries of the millennials.
