MANAGING MILLENIALS


Managing Millenials

 

Introduction

Millennials, also known as Gen Y, have distinctly different behaviors, values and attitudes from previous generations as a response to the technological and economic implications of the World Wide Web. Managing this cohort by recognizing their potential while managing their expectations, will increasingly be an important component in the hiring practices of companies.

 

Discover how your team can perform in an environment where Millennial talent is unleashed and embraced, and when they are more engaged and enthusiastic about growing with your organization.

 

How do leaders create a nurturing environment to engage and retain younger talent? What can we do to create a culture that embraces the diverse talent of this generation?

 

This highly interactive and practical workshop focuses on equipping leaders with the skills, knowledge and attitude to be effective coaches in providing support for growth and performance.

TESTIMONIAL
"We engaged Wendy and Thaddeus to help us organize a company wide seminar on the importance of working through global teams and operating with a global mindset. They helped us organize the content of the seminar, provided coaching to a very diverse multinational group of senior level leaders, and helped us gain alignment in the process. The seminar was a tremendous success. Wendy and Thaddeus were professional, responsive and a lot of fun to work with. Their insight and guidance were invaluable. I would highly recommend their services.."
