By the year 2020, the millennial generation will comprise nearly half of the workforce. This generation brings a new set of values, attitudes and work styles to the office, which can be unfamiliar within a traditional work environment. Managers struggle to find ways to effectively communicate and motivate this fast-paced and tech-savvy generation of employees.
The Xavier Leadership Center is pleased to offer Managing Millennials. By taking a co-facilitation approach, participants are engaged in a well-rounded, 360 degrees of insight from both a manager’s and an employee’s perspective. This program is designed to equip those who manage millennials with ways to effectively lead and empower a team of professionals to more deeply engage in their work.
Participants will learn strategies to lead, motivate and retain the millennial workforce. This program will also provide participants with an understanding of this generation’s cultural dynamics and gain insight on how to engage and communicate with millennial employees.
