Not Everyone Gets a Trophy (TD1741)

Tue, 19 Feb 2019 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Location: USB 100


Jason, a 20-something employee who has been working for you for three weeks, strolls in 20 minutes late, coffee in hand and a smile on his face. Enthusiastically, he tells you, “I’m almost finished with those numbers. And wait until you see what I discovered when I was compiling the data!” Beth, an employee who has been with the company for 18 years, looks on. Her expression says it all: She is steamed. Who does he think he is? 

All across the nation, scenarios like this one are playing out. Traditionally, the generation gap at work was bridged by younger, less-experienced employees deferring to older, more experienced employees. The inexperienced employees knew they had a lot to learn, and they welcomed the senior staff’s tutelage. Not anymore. Times have changed – quickly and dramatically. So how do we help today’s managers navigate these stormy waters?

In this workshop participants will:

  • Identify their Gen Y employees
  • Recognize popular myths about Gen Y employees
  • Debunk preconceived notions about Gen Y employees
  • Identify ways to effectively manage Gen Y employees
  • Implement an action plan to impact how they manage their Gen Y employees
