Rarely a day goes by when we don’t read or hear about how the work ethics, behavior, and attitudes of millennials differ from the generations that preceded them. The fascination with millennials has led to the publication of a staggering number of books, articles, and training programs designed to understand the members of this new largest generation to enter the workforce and provide guidance on how to lead them.
What about when the tables shift and the millennials are called upon to lead? Millennials will be called to lead in organizations where the pace of change is breathtaking. As leaders, they will be faced with challenges they’ve never seen in the past and no leaders that preceded them have dealt with. The ability to acquire leadership skills through experience or from mentors who have “walked in their shoes” will be profoundly insufficient.
Never has leadership been more important. In this interactive presentation, we examine the tools for leading in the modern organization. Whether you are a leader creating the environment for success for the largely millennial workforce, or a millennial leader seeking to acquire tools for leadership success, this presentation offers insight, tools and ideas that leaders across all levels and all industries can immediately apply to tackle real world challenges.
Objectives of this presentation include:
- Accurately diagnose the five roles leaders must play in the modern organization.
- Identify three critical tools that leaders must gain mastery of.
- Examine the most common mistakes leaders make that contribute to an environment that lacks accountability and fosters entitlement.
