Millennials Mean Business
Working across the generations has never been more difficult—especially for Millennials.
Working across the generations has never been more difficult—especially for Millennials. Navigating the business world as a fresh-faced, eager millennial is a tricky proposition. Unfortunately, there is no blueprint for workplace success. Yet, if millennials want to stand out, get ahead, and move up at work, they must master the "soft" business skills early on in their careers.
Studies indicate that Millennials value social media as a perk more than they value salary—yet their Boomer managers may not even use Twitter. Millennials demand work-life balance and a parallel life—yet their managers will work 11 hour work days. Millennials have been taught to ask "why" and offer their opinion their entire lives—but in the workplace, this comes off as entitlement.
In this hilarious keynote, a multigenerational workplace expert discusses how Millennials can navigate the tricky generational divide to show that Millennials Mean Business. We covers the critical issues that Millennials will face working with the different generations in the workplace and preparing them for the working world by offering specific tips for success.
The program kicks off with an enlightening perspective on the four generations—Millennials, Xers, Boomers, and Traditionalists. Frustrations often stem from the lack of understanding amongst the generations in the workplace. In this keynote, Millennials grasp an understanding and awareness of how they are perceived and how they can adjust their style to move forward with professionalism and success.
