Hey! Where's My Trophy?

They’re young, smart and outspoken. They are the epitome of business casual and you’ll find them “connected” 24/7 with their smart phones and social media. They want to work, but they don’t want work to be their life. They want to join a crusade, not a company.

This is Generation Y (or the millennials). And this generation, with a force of as many as 70 million, is different from any that have come before.

You’ve heard the slew of complaints about this group.

They want too much too fast. They aren’t loyal. They don’t want to put in the time. They need too much feedback. They’re pampered and entitled.

But unlike the generations before them, millennials also bring incredible technological savvy, a collaborative spirit and confidence to the workforce. They are team players who are extremely self-expressive, current and conscious of the competition – all incredible strengths to any organization.

And as the millennials grow in prominence and influence in the workforce, leading them will require new and adapted strategies to harness their influence and talents.

Lori Ermi has spent over 20 years helping organizations grow and prepare their emerging leaders. In this CD, she’ll provide the tools and models to assist leaders and organizations in increasing awareness about the perceptions and motivations of this group, how to leverage them, and how to address and bridge the gaps between generations.

You will learn strategies to keep millennial motivated as well as coaching tips for successful onboarding and how to teach the business basics to a group arriving to the workforce without this knowledge.

In just 60 minutes, learners will recognize how values, work style, cultural influences and career expectations have influenced this generation and learn effective management and communication strategies that will resonate with them.

You’ll learn:

  • The Perceptions: Those leaders have of millennials, what millennials have of the previous generations and how to “Win Them Over”
  • How to maximize productivity and contribution by moving beyond stereotypes
  • Successful communication styles (regardless of your age!)
  • What leaders and millennials alike are saying they need more of
  • Tactics for coaching millennials and how to keep them motivated
  • How to understand the generational differences to decrease turnover, increase productivity and morale
