Keeping and retaining talent during a tough economy is a hot topic in today’s dynamic workforce for which there’s no “quick fix.” The most pressing questions which are keeping leaders awake at night are:
– How do I keep my team and customers motivated during tough economic times?
– How do I prevent my younger workers from jumping ship with the knowledge I have empowered them to deploy?
-How do I engage people for longer than 20 minutes in the mission I am trying to achieve in my company?
-How do I create an environment where my top employees’ contributions can keep my company relevant in today’s world?
The Generation Y careerist of the 21st century is experiencing quite a bit of boredom and restlessness in the workplace. If you are a young careerist, under the age of 30, you may be asking:
-How do I get what I really want from my employer when I am bored and restless 75% of the work day?
-How can I make a meaningful contribution to my company when my boss acts like my opinion doesn’t count?
-How can I develop my leadership skills in my company when the executive team seems like they are stuck in the 1960’s?

Millennial Leaders: Success Stories From Today’s Most Brilliant Generation Y Leaders
By: Bea Fields, Jim Bunch, Scott Wilder and Rob Newbold
Gen Y-those individuals born after 1980-are making an indelible mark on our culture. Raised on praise and technology, they are savvier and more confident than any prior generation. Their characteristic values, like social responsibility and authenticity, drive their actions. A majority of the 78 million Gen Yers in the U.S. have entered the workforce, creating a new dynamic. Millennial Leaders presents 28 success stories from brilliant Gen Y leaders and those professionals who have studied this social phenomenon-from a 14 year-old political appointee to a finalist on “The Apprentice.” Through interviews and insights, this book shows experienced leaders (i.e., Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, and Generation X) how to manage, motivate, and communicate with Gen Y, and how to best utilize their talents. The book also provides Generation Y with over 100 strategies for achieving career and personal success. Learn what turns them on and off, how to retain them as employees, and how to cultivate their natural entrepreneurism for your benefit.
EDGE! A Leadership Story
By: Bea Fields and Corey Blake with Eva Silva-Travers
Edge! sharpens your management vision and cuts right to the heart of a leader’s challenges. When Global Trade Management Corporation’s shining star, CEO Mitchell James, begins to lose his luster, key members of the executive team head for the door. With a not-so-subtle nudge from the company’s Board Chairman, Mitch reluctantly accepts the help of executive coach Kate Nelson. The diminutive dynamo strikes at the core of Mitch’s obstacles and navigates him through a step-by-step process to lead more dynamically. Faced with a crisis, his leadership rebirth is put to the test. Can he regain his “Edge” and become the leader his company needs? Chapter by chapter, the authors guide you through Mitch’s journey. At the end of each chapter, real-life leadership coach Bea Fields provides her insight with thought-provoking questions and a summary to engage you in finding your own edge, as well.

“Bea Field’s presentation to the Indiana School Business Officials Leadership Academy on the topic of Generation Y was very insightful and thought provoking. She shared valuable information with our group in order that we might increase our understanding of, work more effectively with, and better utilize the strengths of the newest members of our workforce.

Undoubtedly the most energizing session at the 2007 ICF annual coaches’ conference was the one led by Bea Fields, one of the authors of Millennial Leaders: Success Stories from Today’s Most Brilliant Generation Y Leaders, a new book that introduces us to some truly inspiring young people who are already accomplishing great things at quite a tender age. Bea brought along a couple of these young leaders to give us their own take on Gen Y, and they held a large audience of (mostly) aging Boomers in rapt attention”.
