9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Learn to become more effective in supervising or working with younger professionals. This workshop is also good for millennial professionals new to leadership and seeking to understand how to better engage multi-generational coworkers.


The math is unavoidable.  As the largest generation in U.S. history at an estimated 80 million plus, the workers born between the 80’s and the year 2000 are hitting the workplace in force.  Outnumbering the Baby Boomers and eclipsing the Gen X’ers outright, these employees are and will continue to move into positions of influence and authority at a rate previously unseen.  Millennials are highly motivated and creative performers who tend to operate on different terms and for different incentives than our traditional American workplace culture. To succeed in the future, every manager, new and experienced alike, will need to learn to flex their style to be able to creatively engage our multi-generational workforce as mentors and teachers in order to bring forward their best performance. The future is here - are you ready? 

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of the strengths, unique characteristics and expectations of Millennials and other generations as employees and how they affect workplace interactions
  • Learn how to negotiate performance expectations with Millennial staff and use accountability through coaching for shared success
  • Assess your own leadership and communication style to learn how to be more effective in connecting with emerging professionals
  • Engage in facilitated peer-to-peer dialogue to help you identify how to make it all work for you 

Who should take this class?

This course is ideal for directors, managers and coordinators, individuals who want to become more effective in supervising or working with younger professionals, and experienced leaders looking for a fresh perspective on creating a culture that works for all generations. It is also a great course for millennial professionals new to leadership and seeking to understand how to better engage multi-generational coworkers.
