I am honored to be co-leading a presentation with Tom Heck tomorrow, founder of the International Association of Teamwork Facilitators. Here is the description of the call:
Secrets To Leading Gen-Y with Millennials in the Workplace Expert Bea Fields — Free IATF TeleSeminar
Are you having difficulty leading your Gen-Y team members?
You already know Gen-Y is unlike any other generation you’ve had the opportunity to lead.
They are the children of the Baby Boomers and are now the largest generation in the history of the world. This is the generation you must learn to lead if you are to be successful!
Employers thought Gen-Y would simply be an extension of Gen-X or Boomers but that hasn’t been the case at all.
- Enjoy working together and are highly connected (always on computers, cell phones, text messaging, instant messaging, social networking, blogs, multi-player gaming, etc.)
- Seek work-life balance
- Expect to be highly successful and are upbeat
- Reward and recognition driven
- Short term focused
- Supremely tech savvy
- Want managers they can admire
If you try to manage Gen-Y using an old, outdated, command-and-control style of leadership, this generation will walk out your door before lunch. And before the end of the day, they’ll blog, IM, and text about their experience with you (warning their friends to stay away).
Times have changed and leaders must change with the times or be left behind.
If you’re a leader looking for answers to your Gen-Y in the workplace issues then you need to know about Bea Fields.
Bea Fields is a coauthor of Millennial Leaders and is a Gen-Y in the workplace expert. Bea travels around the country and works with cutting edge organizations (large and small) who recognize the writing on the wall and want to change the way they’re doing business and become supremely attractive to Gen-Y employees.
If you hire, train, or lead Gen-Y you need to know what Bea Fields is teaching.
Bea is an IATF Visiting Faculty Member and will be our special guest on this FREE leadership skills TeleSeminar. In addition to sharing her unique and specialized knowledge of Gen-Y during the call, Bea will alos offer a Q&A session so you have a chance to talk with Bea one-on-one to get your Gen-Y questions answered.
