Millennials & Beyond: Bridging the Gap

Millennials. Gen Y. I’m sure you’ve heard the slew of complaints about this group…because there are a lot.

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.

There seems to be no hotter topic and yet, it really shouldn’t be that new. After all, you’ve always had a variety of ages and styles to lead, right? And what generation hasn’t been baffled by the behaviors of the succeeding one?

As leaders, it is our responsibility to get the very best from our team, to bring out each person’s unique strengths and to help improve their weaknesses – regardless of their age or generation.

And since statistics show that by 2025, 3 out of every 4 workers globally will be Millennials, we need to figure this demographic out, and fast!

The good news is that for all of the negatives there are about millennials, there are even more positives.

They are incredible technological savvy. They have a collaborative spirit and bring tremendous 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, wouldn’t you agree?

In this powerful and informative audio presentation, renowned coach and certified Senior Professional in Human Resources, Lori Ermi, draws on her over 20 years of experience in helping organizations grow and prepare their emerging leaders to give you the tools you need to effectively manage and lead this growing generation. Through increasing awareness about the perceptions and motivations of this group, you’ll learn how to leverage them, and how to address and bridge the gaps between generations.

Participants 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, participants 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 that leaders have of millennials, those that millennials have of the previous generations and how to move beyond them to “Win Them Over”
  • How to move beyond the stereotypes to maximize productivity and contribution
  • The most successful and effective communication styles to use – regardless of age!
  • What leaders and millennials alike are saying they need more of
  • Coaching tactics to keep millennials engaged and motivated
  • How to understand the generational differences to decrease turnover, increase productivity and morale

Regardless of whether you manage 1 or 100 millennials, being aware and able to others’ perspectives will make you more effective and successful – now and in the future!
